i need some tips on doing bigger jumps
even when i straight air the jump.... i roll down the windows big tyme, and start to sketch out in the air
some tymes its so bad that i cant even get in a safety, or something small like that
if i cant stop sketching out in the air when i straight air the jump, theres no hope for spins
any help with that would be apreceated
you need to think about it like you are jumping off the lip instead of just going off it. you need to pop and set you weight forward to get a smooth trajectory. you probably do this without thinking on the smaller jumps because a lot less force is exerted on your body so it isn't so hard to counteract and stay up and forward. with the biggies, you are going faster and you have to be stronger in keeping those hands right our in front of your body and popping aggressively. do it a bunch of times and it will be more natural. then, spin your heart out...which will just add a new element to mess things up, but that's why you practice and you'll get it down.
lol wow i noticed that too... But yea big things you need to worry about when you start jumping are, weight forward, hands foward, and pop. Once you get that down spinning is just a matter of trying it. Make sure you are confident with the jump before you try anything off the jump... landings will come much more easily that way

striaght airing is hard dude, it really is. for me, when i spin on jumps, it forget about the jumping aspect completely and just focus on my spin/grab/whatever im doing. make sure when you hit the jump you pop as hard as you can also, becuz without realizing it you could be getting more and more scared while approaching the jump, and you might forget to pop, so just chill out and treat it like a 10 footer. gl
can you 180 on flat ground? i'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say "yes", because it's about as easy as shitting your pants. -crazyfuck
