Sounds like you don't know how to jump at all. Might want to go to the basics of a straight air.
sounds like you don't know what you're talking about, big difference between a straight air and a method. The problem i have with a method like i said is I anticipate it first and start to lean a bit before I jump. only happens when trying this

You have to not rush it. Have your board be flat when you leave the jump, if you have a smooth pop transitioning to a shifty and the grab is pretty easy. (at least for me) I cant wrap my head around nose and tail grabs... methods are intuitive for me though

the trick is to not anticipate or decide what you are gonna do til you realize the jump is twice as big as you thought, and if you don't do something you are gonna windmill and eat shit

also yoga, lots of warrior pose

a method IS a straight air, ya rook.

Learn to jump. Wax on, wax off.

Chances are if you're arguing with BA, you're gonna have a bad time.

make sure you have the flexibility to do it first , try it on carpet first the grab.

on the slope practice doing backside shifty.

then tweak out the back leg higher then front.

Just get the Snowboard addiction video on methods.

Practice shifty jumping off a chair. Helps developing muscle memory. If you're not balanced well for method you can't be balanced well for straight air either because as someone pointed out method is essentially a straight air. Get flat, get centered and pop evenly with both feet. Your energy should be directed up, your speed will provide the forward momentum.

And then there was this. You need to learn air awareness chief plain and simple.

Sounds to me like you already know the problem. Stop going for the grab until you're in the air.

Do everything up until you're airbourne like a straight air (assuming you have straight airs on lockdown), then only once you're airbourne go for the grab.

The key with any grab is you want to do it all in the air. If you start changing your normal setup/stance before you're even in the air you'll throw off your entire air.

Grabs, method or not, are simply a straight air + a grab once you're airbourne. It's not a different technique to doing a straight air, it's just adding to your current straight air once you're in the air.
