Hi,

so i was wondering. ive seen a lot of videos where people land too hard after their jump and fall flat on their face or butts; is there any tip on landing not so hard so this doesnt happen?

IF you can try to land with your board flat on the surface oppose to land on the back/front leg frist. So you're landing on both feet at the same time and absorb the landing with your legs. Ride off on heel/toe edge so minimize catchyness when you're riding flat. and ride off.

practice.  period.  people always act like there is some mystical magical tip that will correct all their faults, but there isn't.  you understand how to land (on your feet, centered, etc), so practice.  the key to doing it right is PRACTICE until you learn it.  there is just nothing else to it.

I find visualization helps alot.  Before you hit the jump visualize how you are going to progress through the air.  Speed is probably the hardest thing to get right and there's no great way to judge that.

landing is just hard to explain. try and land balanced. honestly, the best way is to just to go out and see what works for you. Watch others on speed, angle, etc. and try it out! just work your way up, dont start off with anything crazy

great info and help. and i agree, practice is the key because everyone has their own methods for landing and everyones legs and body is different so you can't really go off of everyones certain..."tips".

Spot your landings. Watch the pros and notice where theyre looking, theyre always searching to spot their landing. Speed is also key. Too much or too little can be bad news. Also scope out a jump before hitting it. You can check if the landings are rutted out or how far you need to land to clear the knuckle.

not that I care, but you had at least 2, maybe 3 threads about them (they are listed in your profile), and then the post you made in the highback thread just now, right after you posted this, was talking about how you don't need to buy baseplates anymore.  so... you don't remember wanting baseplates, yet you are clearly referencing having wanted baseplates but no longer needing them, in the post you made after this one.

also, the disks you're talking about are called mounting disks.  baseplates are the actual base of the binding.

as far as the notion of spam, you have 26 threads in under two months, most of which are within the last month, some of which are repeats or unnecessary.  again, I don't care, but I'm pointing these things out because you don't seem to be aware of what these people are talking about.
