I pray that I don't fall.. and then I fall. I have a hard time landing, its always on my mind as I approach, 50% of the time I'll get the landing the other half I'll botch the landing.

It's just awkward to try anything when anyone is watching period for me, which sucks because most of the park features are right next to the lifts.  LOL


When I first started boarding I always thought like this.  Just didn't want others to think I was a total poser.  The Irony is I kinda was a poser.  Never got any better, so one season I just decided that I was going to hike and work on getting better and that I wasn't up there to prove anything to anyone but myself..  Now I just don't even care what other boarders/skiers think.  Most of the time anyway, sometimes I see local pros goin off the jumps and just kinda wait for them to pass.  ha

I've never understood the purpose of getting high or buzzed besides the lack of fear factor but even then you're not even feeling balanced or maybe even wanna puke.  LOL

After the approach, I try to just blank out and let my body handle the jump. If I get too caught up in the speed of the approach, I sometimes skid brake too close to the lip and end up off axis, leading to a bail. I've found that If I accept the jump, regardless of the approach, I can usually stick the landing, even if I overshoot, or undershoot. I'm still in good position to absorb the impact and ride away. It's worked so far. I fall much less often.

I found that if I think about a jump, I don't takeoff or land the way I wanted to. The entire time I was dropping in I would think more about wether or not I was going to make it off the jump alive. I found Out it was alot easier if I just went for it, not really thinking about the jump. I also have a friend go first to get a feel on how much speed you need. I know that seems mean, but my friends are the ones to always be the firat to do something.

The approach is also the biggest problem for me.
The thing is the approach is where you have the most control.
You have a choice to get more speed or slow down, but once you are in the air there is little that can be done. Jumps are way fun though but make sure not to hit the knuckle so I try to get a little more speed than needed.

Hardest part for me is the first approach and sizing up a jump, translating how fast other people are going to how fast I need to go to not knuckle or land even shorter than that.
ROLL ON, BISHES.

I am definitely the guy who likes to go last.  A, you get to check everyone else and know how fast you need to approach.  B, I always like to finish off whatever the group is doing.  First is good except when you mess up by coming up too short or something else.

For that it will help landing on one edge not flat. A lot harder especially for straight airs but start gradual until its comfortable. It's hard to think about it for the few seconds or less you're in the air so just think ahead --> "I'm going gradually to carve toeside - or - heelside once i land."

the best way to solve that problem is to take a look around to other people speed. When you take notice about their speed and how they finish the jump, you will have an idea of how much speed should you have before jumping.

Bend your knees, pop it and grab it!!!

I have a hard time on the approach as I generally check speed WAY too much and end up not getting the air I wanted. Usually happens after a previous mistake though, like popping too late and landing nose forward, or catching more air than anticipated and thus panicking in the air and messing up the landing. I think all this will be fixed over time though and repetition. I just have to jump MORE and just go for it. Same with anything that you want to get used to.

My biggest problem is overthinking in the approach, thinking I'm going to fast, or to slow etc, once I'm in the air I just focus. Problem is when I'm learning new tricks the psych out in the approach makes it hard.
I found the best way to overcome that for me was to do a jump I knew a few times over, when not many people were around and just practice something like methods if I'm learning a new grab or 180's if I'm trying to learn to do a grab with a spin until I had the approach perfect. Takes a bit longer before I'm actually trying the trick, but I seem to get it alot quicker!

1st thought! OUTCH!!! I shtooked big time, and that really hurts! I can't breath... did I just break a rib?!! I rest for 5-10 and do it again... Wink
 
I (try) to never leave without a do-over and getting a clean one to keep the good memory alive. Otherwise, all I'll remember is how much that hurt not how much fun it was! And that will put me back not forward.
 
What helps is watching MUCH bigger jumps POV (youtube), so when I see mine it looks much easier. LOL
 
This year, all I wanted was to do and land jumps. Not 100% there with grabs and what not, but close. Had sooo much fun at it, that I started hitting boxes and things! Still a newb... but at least I know I can do it. I hurt my shoulder on a box, but stil wanna do it again.
 
Next year I'm planning for much bigger things! At least that's teh plan... will see how it goes.
 
Start small and build on it...

Spend a little time in the park near the jump / kicker / or table that you want to hit.  Watch other riders hit it.  Watch them to see their speed.  Then, take another run through the park again and approach the jump with the speed that you think you need to safely clear it / land it.  Stop just shy of the top and get a good look at the distance needed to clear it from the top of the jump.  Last but not least (may sound stupid but it works), picture yourself hitting the jump and landing it in order to build up your confidence.  Then, go hit it.  If you come up short, you obviously know you need more speed.  If you over shoot it, scrub off some speed.  After hitting a jump a few times, no matter how big or small, you will start to get an eye for how fast you need to hit it and it will be easier for you to judge it each and every time.  Practice practice practice.  That's the key.  Good luck, you'll get it.

I look at the jump only for a second and breath deep and decide what goes up will come down and know that if I grab the board ill be more stabel in the air. Then I just go and pop at the take off and see how it goes. Some time you win sometimes you lose

If its a new jump i like to watch people hit it a few times. Then when I go for it i tell myself i can do it, and make sure I commit to it. I find when the commitment is only 50% there, thats when injuries occur. But approach is trickiest, not going too fast or too slow.

Yep. First thing first when hitting new jumps, be comfortable. If grabbing isn't, then don't do it yet. I just stepped up to the bigger kickers @ my resort, didn't do a grab at all, even though on the smaller ones (that arn't that that small) I've been getting nose, tail, stales, melons and most of the grabs completely down. When I first was looking at it, I was scared. Then I thought, wow these arn't even big compared so some I've seen. Just looked at, thought of myself hitting it, and knew I could do it, which I did. Perrrrrfecto. If you know your good enough, do it.

I havent been able to find my timing yet for popping, I seem to pop too late and then am all jumbled in the air. Ive mastered boxes and done that but just having the balls to go at it and learn. I know I will eventually be able to get the correct speed and timing to launch of bigger jumps

I have a hell of a time spotting my landing.  The jump always seems to go by in .02 seconds.  Usually I just go for it and hope for the best.

Whenever I hit a jump, the fear of overshooting it ALWAYS hits me right before the jump and I end up braking too much that i barely make it over the top. This season is when that is gonna change!

I know this is a joke, but I really think having chicks watch you makes you concentrate like nothing else in the park. 

I second this, nothing works like not wanting to embarrass yourself in front of some chicks.

On a general term, like my quote states, I try not to over-think it. I usually just get to a comfortable speed, and unless it is a spin just see what happens while im in the air.

I have trouble with nerves before big jumps. I just need to commit to the jump. Confidence is the key to everything: picking up girls, hitting a shot at the buzzer, doing well on tests, public speaking, and landing tricks.

I finally got up the nuts to do a 30 footer last year and as I stood up, some idiot with a rental and dreads sticking up through his helmet like a mohawk cut in front of me. 

He didn't speed check at all and over shot the landing by about 15 feet. As soon as he hit the lip his feet went sky-high and he flailed his arms which kept him from doing the full backflip. From the dead rotation and the way he was laying there, I'm positive he landed on his head or neck..

I chickened out, took it as a sign from God. Went down past the guy to go get ski patrol. He was a bloody mess. 
Bring it hard or don't bring it at all.

personally i think a lot of its just procedural memory. once your familiar with the approach and the launch its almost second nature, i guess the cognition is in spotting and stomping.

you don't need to ollie off jumps.  especially for beginners.  Ollie can be added later to get more air.  Ollie is one more thing to worry about when jumping.  Better to get comfortable with takeoff, the trick, and landing... THEN add in the ollie.
