Airbag @ Stevens this weekend...What to think about?
 
Never hit an airbag before but contemplating it just for fun this weekend. Only issue is that the kicker to the bag is 16' and looks monstrous. Way larger than I've even attempted.

For those who have done this, is it safer than it looks? What are some tips for someone who has never hit one before?

I can envision some pretty bad situations (knee to chin) and want to make sure I've thought about it before really going for it.

It was at Crystal last week, and i paid for 5 jumps on it. The kicker was also bigger than anything ive hit before (no real jumps at crystal, just natural terrain ones), but then i realized im landing on a giant airbag, grew a pair and hit it going as fast as i could. It was a blast, highly reccomend doing it!

Well, it's a good thing Crystal is buying one, cause these damn things are always here on the weekends, and I work on the weekends...always. I really wanna try hitting one in a bad way though. Soon though......soon.

Don't worry about anything. It's such a soft landing. As long as you can make it to the jump, everything else is cake.

So what did you try with those 5 jumps on the bag? Anything crazy?

Not really, ive only been snowboarding for a month lol. Front flip, 720 and then just hucked myself off the other 3 trying to corkscrew. Its a blast, i just hope when the bag gets set up the prices are reasonable (if they charge, which i am sure they will).
