Hey guys ive used the searchbar and i could really find anything. How do you judge your speed for bigger jumps ive heard watch a guy your size and see how fast he goes or stop up the jump ect im going to a park that has bigger jumps than im used to and i could really use some tips to make sure im going fast enough i have a bad tendency to go to slow. Thanks alot i appreciate all the advice!
watch other people, look at EXACTLY how many turns they do instead of just going straight. each turn slows you down a tiny bit, so if someone does 3 turns than hits the jump, then that jump, from where everyone starts, has 3 speedchecks to get perfect speed.
so if theres 3 speedchecks, you carve 3 times, while still sort of straightlining to the jump
what i like to do is find a guy whos hitting the jumps and ask him if you can ski just behind im and stop at the lip, that pretty much gives me an idea of how much speed i need, airtime etc. when i can see him infront of me..
