I understand the popping is jumping or sort of ollieing on skis at the lip of a jump. I usually try to lean back as I approach the lip and then jump a bit and lean forward. I also bring my knees up a little. But how high my pop is varies a LOT. So are there any tips to get a great pop everytime and also possibly higher?
uh if ur hitting a jump you do NOT wanna lean back. get those hands forward, knees bent, and pop off your toes. if your ollieing onto a rail, or just for steeze while skiing you can lean back into the tails and hop forward like an ollie on a skateboard or a j hop on a bike - however this is way more fun with rockered skis
you can indeed get the ski to give you more pop. jumping straight up doesn't let the ski do anything for you. but don't rely on the ski to give you good pop, do some leg exercises which will help more of your skiing than just popping
Still not understanding how a certain ski, will give you more pop then another ski. All the "pop" comes from your legs...ie extending your legs slightly as your clear the lip of the jump. How can ski's aid in pop, when your not buttering off your tails or nose?
