PhreeKandiI shot the jump straight to flat, and compressed my spine
bike.life.beckI've overshot a handful of jumps in my day. But i've never compressed my spine. I normally just purposefully land by bending my knees so far that I am or almost am laying down. Sounds quirky but works for me to absorb the shock. Trick is just do everything humanly possible to try and gauge the speed properly and if you do under/over shoot just be prepared to absorb more shock than a wife with two kids finding out her husband had an affair with her.
SPK_Apparently, spinning pizzas in Whistler works wonders to make you stomp every trick to the parking lot and ski out unscathed with mad style.
apttLast winter I turned a 30 foot jump into about a 60 foot jump. Landed completely flat but somehow I still landed.
apapel20I have experience over shooting. At trollhaugen right now, they have a booter with a really steep landing.
JT9D...like one of those nightmares where you fly over the landing.
