Exclamation How to hit those big kickers......

I am very ashamed to say this but I am deathly afraid of hitting those big kickers... Well not hitting them but actually pullin shit off of them..

Straight grabs etc. are easy for me but I guess Im more of a rail kid... I can 5 off of smaller jumps pretty easy but those big kickers I'm am really afraid of.. Whether it be the icy landings we have in michigan or the fact that I have a knee injury and those hard impacts hurt my acl...

Anyone have any tips for hittin 3's and 5's off of them?

After I land a 5 im positive I could get a 7......

Moral of the story. Take care of your knees and other assorted joints. It's no fun when you can use them.
