Wow he's ridden for a year and he can hit jumps woo hoo I know a hundred kids that can't turn that could hit those jumps too want to go praise them?

Call me what you want but I did what was asked.
you didn't critique shit, you said: Might want to learn how to hit a jump.

how is that a critique? it's a facetious negative comment that did nothing but piss off the OP. would you have appreciated a comment like that if you were just learning and were seeking advice?

The vid was taken with a gopro hd. In some of the shots there is complete white out of the snow with no detail. I think it's because it was too sunny with lots of glare off the snow.

There is a difference between "Critique" and "Criticize" you obviously chose to criticize.

I wouldn't mind living in Vancouver where you are anyway.

to the op, it looks to me like you are a little on edge when popping off the lip. learning to pop off an edge is a useful tool as you learn spins, but when youre just getting the hang of straight airs/grabs i think its better to make sure and put your base flat as you go off the lip.

1.) get your setup turns (try not to scrub speed) as you approach the lip.
2.) when you're about 5 feet away, put your base flat, keep your weight centered, and begin loading up the tail as you approach the lip.
3.) pop!
4.) bring your knees up, keep your upper body quiet, and dont lean back or forward. once you get the feel for that floating feeling, then start reaching for various grabs and try some shiftys just to get the feel for moving your board around in the air (will help you when you learn spins).

all this is situational depending on the size of the jump, as you hit bigger features you should just basically let the jump do the work for you and not need to pop as much as others have said.

I was in Mammoth for a fishing trip last year during the 4th of July weekend and i heard it was the last weekend for snowboarding/skiing. I was debating but i chose
Fishing > snowboarding with a rental.
if you have a chance, fishing in Mammoth in the summer is so much fun. They stock their local lakes with rainbow,brown and brook trout.
also its usually a nice comfy 70 degrees.

btw i heard this season might be similar to last season, so looks like snowboarding til early july is possible
