I havent and dont feel the need to hit jumps much bigger than that, but one thing I know about hitting a larger jump is you dont want to case it. Rather go a little farther down to the sweet spot. Its the same as a smaller I would just try to be confident and grab in the air for stability(or at least tuck the knees). You'll never see me hitting a 75 footer personally though

Well, if youre looking to go somewhere with your riding you are gonna have to push yourself hard, really hard. Ive seen guys from my school go places, Jake Kuzyk (in a few videograss movies), Jody Wachniuk, but these guys ride the street/a little BC I dont think they even hit jumps bigger than 75 feet. Just have fun with it if you get where you want to go thats awesome. If you really wanna go far you wanna be shredding all year round improving. As for me Im just gonna play it safe and go to college

I believe that's known as "common sense". Enjoy your sanity.

Pretty sure it's no different than smaller jumps....just with a lot more hang time.

Don't they design the jumps so that if you straight line it from near the top, there's no way you can overshoot the landing?

Go faster on the ground and slower in the air.

Find someone that will let you pace them as they hit the jump while you go to the side at the last moment. Once you have the speed then you just have to huck it.
