I can relate to the slow then fast conditions. Wisconsin isn't much better for snow, mostly man made and at night the conditions change quickly.

I totally agree on the form when your in trouble. Like I said been there. I have trouble with form on a good jump I've done.
Your video is my biggest fear. I can take a wreck, just an over shot wreck seems to really be the worst from everyone's stories.
This upcoming year will really be my proving point. My riding has progressed to be able to ride more park and jumps. So hopefully I won't have a video like this but if I do I'll post, and I'm sure my form won't be there as well. Hell I got a video out there of a small jump and me rolling windows.
I have taken a knuckle shot that I had to visit my Chiropractor on. I truly felt that for a week.
Your video is still a good learning tool for me.

That was a 50 foot jump it looks like it's 20 feet if that.

Haha, yeah, but it's a lot more than a 20' jump though...

I'm being generous saying it's 20 feet. That thing looks like a kiddie park jump. What are you measuring start of the take off to the end of the landing then it might be 50 feet long total.

No, it is 50'... it looks smaller on the video, but I know it is 50'


And Burton Avenger, I doubt you would hit it...

I don't ride crappy jumps so I definitely would walk away from riding it. But I also know it's not 50 feet even from that video. Rarely do you even find a 50 foot jump in the mid Atlantic region.
