you just started last feb? look pretty good to me. if you're just starting, try not to worry too much about ollieing or popping off the jump. just go really fast and let the jump do most of the work. once you're comfortable with hitting jumps at a good speed, which judging from the video, you actually are, then think about ollieing or popping.

try not to flail your arms in the air or when you come down from the jumps. looks like you're coming down really hard on some of those jumps. but then again i'm guilty of the same thing. I tend to flail coming out of my grabs myself.

You just started last February? You're coming along just fine. Don't listen to BA. He's a good dude, but damn he can be a douche sometimes. This was one of those times.

To be clear, I'm not claiming to be immune to that myself.

I felt like grabs kept me more stable in the air with less flailing of my arms. I think I tried to grab in most of those shots but missed on most. Thanks for the help.

I think he might be standing up too straight. He's landing hard because he isn't bending his knees enough.

How's it being a douche he can't jump he puts his body in the wrong position which is why there's all that flailing and pulling the board behind him. Keep doing that and wait till the knee goes pop because he's too stiff when he lands.

It's being a douche because you weren't nice enough to tell him what was wrong with his jump. Now that I know you were withholding tips that could save his knees, you look even worse.
