      1. Get body armor so you're not as scared. Breaking your tailbone or the potential of that will cause you to tense up and jumps will never work.
      2. If you can't jump on flat ground, you're riding off-balance. It's all about balance. Start with small hops as you're riding and if you're not landing perfectly smooth even after a 1-inch jump, it's because you started off unbalanced to begin with. It's not the jump, it's the setup.
      3. Once you can hop on flat ground without falling, start with the smallest jump in the park. They're built for success. Don't do anything. Get low, relax, ride straight, don't think. Just go over it with a little bit of speed. Start small, go slow, and hike that feature. I can't stress that enough. If you can do it 100 times in a day because you hiked it instead of riding the lift up every time, you'll get better at it way faster.

      But balance. Muuust learrrn balaaance Daniel-san.

      Also, if you want to come ride the PNW and need a place to stay, I have a spare room and a lot of extra boards.
      This is the exact response I was looking for.
      1) anything you recommend? I was looking at somehting like these

      2) should I be starting with jumping both feet at the same time, or ollie where I lift the front first then follow with the back leg?

      3) I never thought of just unstrapping and walking back up, the mountain was empty it would have been ideal, I'll do that next time

      PNW huh, do you live near either of the Ikon mountains? I may take you up on this offer

      Yeah check out Crystal mountain on the Ikon pass. 1:45 minutes away from me. They'll have a decent small park setup probably after the next snowfall. Right now they've got some small jumps and rails going.
