Trouble with steezy methods
I'm having trouble doing a good, steezy ass method! Very frustrated this weekend. You guys have any advice?

Vids below.

I know that was a smaller jump but I cant seem to pull it around. Seen a tiny kid do one right after me and crushed my spirits lol!

I don't know shit, but saw this just the other day and sounded good when I listened to it, so maybe it will help.

Looks like you might be coming off your toes in that first vid, pat moore said you should be flat based. Give that a try.

Its the flexible guys who can do these proper, so try stretching/yoga everyday to get that quick twistability between your upper and lower body

I find that methods are easiest off heel side hip jumps, natural or in the park, the shape of the jumps puts your body in the right position. The whole thing pivots around your front leg, pull your front knee in and reach for the grab, then push the back leg out, at the same time rotate your upper body.

Grabbing in front of your binding or behind is a style choice, euro vs NW. Got to have your back hand up arcing over your head. In my avitar pic I'm almost grabbing my rear binding.

Pop off a flat base and hold the grab more, your rushing to let it go but you have more time. A bigger jump would help for sure... its a good start though!

I appreciate all the advice. Hopefully I can get out one more time this year (midwest sucks).

Looks like I need more air, throw my right arm in front, and hold and bend longer.

Can't wait to get out!!!
