That's how you fall, before you even get to the jump.
Edit* I was told I did not fall here, somehow I stayed up

The flex is soft along with the reverse camber, just gotta learn to take full advantage of it.

Yeah, I sucked at the mini pipe. My girl was trynna teach her little sis so I couldn't get too many shots. All I could do was sort of a fake FS 180, but I was able to get my biggest air where the pipe ends

So how does the reverse camber feel as a beginner? I haven't rode one myself and am trying to help some friends starting out purchase their first boards.
Specifically, out of the park? They are not interested in jibbing but everyone is pumping up reverse camber and they came to me feeling overwhelmed.

To me the board was great, stable at higher speeds, good control, the snow was choppy slush at the summit and the board rolled right over it since it's it is r-cambered. I've ridden all rented boards the past three years, this year I bought cambered board and now that I have this stunt I can tell the difference. The r-camber is good for a beginner.

Edit: Seven, I was more than likely coming up this weekend one of these days. My boys ski's and wanted to go for the college day tho, told hm it would be crowded.

nice work dude... way to charge it!! Falling just means you're pushing yourself to progress (that or you're a space cadet like me). Great work. Keep hitting it!

Cool pics, nice save on the one you "didn't fall".  Looks like a guaranteed fall, but nice work on saving it.

My first day in the park didn't go as well.... Slide of a rail and nicked the back of my head, no helmet, could have been a lot worse. I would suggest getting a helmet.

You just gotta keep working on the jumps until you feel more and more comfortable, and eventually work your way up to bigger jumps.  I actually found that learning how to recover from a bad landing or takeoff off the smaller jumps helps a lot on the larger features.
