Great tips everyone. I guess I need to watch a few more videos carefully and just go find some shit and try it

The traverse ollie tip is a big one. Never tried it.

The biggest thing about natural features is that you have to constantly adjust to them as they get banged up, especially when there is fresh around.

In this sense you can never hit it quite the way you would hit a normal little jump or roller, where you are counting on consistency, now you are loose and counting on inconsistency. I like the side hits that get super carved into the sides of runs, great for little spins into the run and gapers.

Oftentimes the rutted out fucked up approaches to these hits mean that all u do is use it for speed and holding onto your balls and you practically only "pop" as you are leaving the lip (as any other sort of preloading is bound to find you a bump and a caught edge).

Start with the traverse ollie on a flat groomed, then look for a small bump to traverse into.

Popping a ollie coming out of a hard carve are fun too, load the tail at the end of the carve and pop. Teaches you to keep the the edge while you take off.
