How the fuck do you knuckle a step down? Seriously it's a step down it's designed to just set you down on the landing.

Agreed... towards the end of last season I overshot the biggest jump at my local mountain, about 50', and I landed completely flat, and the landing is about 30' tall, when I landed, I thought I broke my leg... but in fact, I only partially tore my calf muscle...

Here's a vid of it, by the way, this is the first time I hit the jump, and the snow was slow, so I went as fast as humanly possible... which in hindsight, was a very bad idea...

Schlitz is really pretty good from the "old school" brewery days, it was a nice bring back beverage.

Not to critique, but you squared your shoulders up immediately too. Way bigger jump than I have ever done so kudos there

Haha, yeah, that was by far the closest I have ever been to literally shitting my pants...

Haha, not bad for my second year snowboarding? Well... my third, but I went twice my first year, then broke my thumb...

And when I got back from the injury from the vid, which I was out for about 4 months, I broke my fucking hand 3 weeks later on my bike... and FINALLY I can do ride my fucking bike again lol.


And what do you mean "squared your shoulders"?

And if you watch the video, all the way in the background when I'm coming into the lip, you can see the other 2 landings for the jumps before this one, then farther up there is another bump thing, that is where I dropped from, not speed checking, and pumping over the landings of the other 2 jumps... needless to say... I should have speed checked about a dozen times or so... The reason I went so fast was, the snow was pretty slow that day, and my friends said that there is no way I could clear the jump that night because of how slow the snow was, I tried to prove them wrong, which obviously... I did.

Etshcmall,
I'm still trying to get to the point your at, so please don't take it as flaming just trying to help. I've taken my fair share of hard hits.
To your friends point that it will be slower at night, why did they think that. Usually it ices up a bit making it faster and harder after the sun sets and temps start to fall again.

To your shoulders. Look at the video at 2 seconds. You can see that your shoulders are perpendicular to your board. But you did bring them back to parallel. I think that threw your balance way off as Qball said you started rolling down the windows, swing the arms in circles. Plus if you try to bring up your legs it will help to keep you balanced in the air, yours are straight down almost boning your rear leg. I've done that and sometimes still do on way smaller jumps.

That did look like that was gonna hurt to.

The reason they said it was slow, was because it was veeeerrryyy slow, (that's what I get for being in PA...) but even in the day the snow was slow, and got slower as it got later.

And about rolling down the windows and squaring up, when you know your going to overshoot by that far... proper form is the last thing going through your mind haha. But my legs looked stiffer in the video than they were, but I had them down to try to absorb as much impact as I could.

But when you overshoot that big of a jump, by that far your fist thought is... well, this is going to really fucking hurt... and you forget the correct way to jump.



And believe me... it defiantly hurt.
