Default Help boy just won't listen to me....vid

So as many of you know I've been trying to help the boys improve their riding. My 14 yr old has always been very hard for me to coach so much so I don't. Saves our relationship but I still try to help.
He is really struggling in his jumps and I can see why. He won't watch my SA videos, he hears my advice but doesn't take it or doesn't know how to use the tips I tell him.

Here is a short video of him jumping, some footage was already shown, some is from today's outing. Any suggestions on how to help me help him??? He is really getting frustrated with washing out every landing. Maybe something that made it click for you. A tip for a kid to relate to his dad. Anything useful, we have a good relationship, me coaching him is just something that doesn't work for him and I we are very much alike....

well right off the bat his stance is pretty off, his shoulders are open causing his legs to wanna match up with his upper body and putting him on his heel edge so he slides out like that. he also needs to bend his knees a little more to help with the landing. when he lands itll be easier for him to stick it if he comes down on his toes.


you can really see how open his shoulders are by the way he has his back arm, i like to call that the "mystery date" because he has his arm out like its around someones shoulders. the best way to fix that is in his general riding since if he hits jumps like that, chances are he rides around like that too. as much as he'd probably hate by the sounds of it, all you can really do is keep reminding him to keep his shoulders closed when hes riding when you catch him doing it.

The mystery date I like that !!! I really haven't watched his normal riding, that is a great point and I will start to look at that.
I haven't sent him this video yet, as he really wasn't responsive to reviewing videos. So I've been posting them to his FB in a very fun way hoping he would watch them and maybe critique his own form.
I'm trying everything I can think of.

Thanks Cro

well by the sounds of it hes getting very frustrated and not having fun because of washing out on his landings. plus its his dad, can you really tell him to not care about his son getting frustrated over something?

in my opinion, video review is one of the best things to do to help correct your form. something that you might think feels alright could actually be completely off and once you watch yourself most of the time you can see that.

Plus one of these times he could plant on his ass and really get hurt and end his season. Who really wants this to happen to his son or anyone????

One thing that would help would be for him to bend his knees when he lands and stay squared up with his knees and shoulers.

Also try to teach your son how to pop off of jumps and to absorb the impact of the landing with his legs

OR at least suck his knees up when he goes off the jump and let them down right before he lands.

Get him a hooker and then he'll respect and listen to you often. Or just hire a bigger kid to mock him till he does it right.
