haha glad I can all ways count on you snowolf. I know the the second jump wasn't the one I cared about so much, but your insight is still helpful. I definitely know better than to ever but my heel edge down on a hard toeside turn. I had too much speed for the short jump and definitely freaked mid-air.

I didn't realize I took off toeside.. if I did it was me thinking I was setting myself to cork the base of my board out for a non-girl method which has been my goal. I was kinda looking for more advice about how to set up for a poster perfect method.. I end up kicking my back leg down as I did on the first jump.. how can I tweak it up higher than my front leg? More backbend form?

Thank you tho!

Looks like a pretty nice one to me - we've seen you try to skateboard.

not talking shit but if you hit bigger jumps you'll have more time in the air and it will be alot easier to get the base of your board around so it's facing downhill like you want.

to throw methods off of small jumps takes alot of control and balance to get the base downhill in time. practice by doing shifties with a grab in the method spot of of every small bump you hit, and then when you get to the bigger jumps the muscle memory will be there, and then just tweak that bitch.

What would be the best grab for a fs shifty? When I say best I don't mean hardests/coolest, I mean for an old man beginner.

A method is a bs shifty right?

I've just gotten fs shiftys going real nice, but bs is super awkward, I think most of that is taking off on the wrong edge/improper setup on the jump, but twisting bs just feels fucked.

I could use help on my method, but a grab on the shifty in my avatar (that jump is almost too small, but regularly hit 25-35 footers where I can learn it) would be pretty cool to learn too.

A method is not a bs shifty...

But I'm sure one of the guys can break the grabs down better for you.
Thanks I'll work it out on the bigger jumps next season. I started trying for them in the spring last season so it was getting pretty sticky but the small park was still fun. Like I said I got the base of my board downhill. People on the hill say they look good but they still aren't a real method. Ahh now it's time to wait for snow.

Got a question. If you grab tindy and poke to nose down is it still a tindy. Like a nose bone. Also what about a tindy grab but you tweak it like a method behind your back. I see Muller doing this all the time. Might be the chicken wing with the front of the board though. I don't know my grabs to well.
