You mean don’t start any moves or spins until I’m off? And am I supposed to keep my foot dropped back even when going off the lip?
Am I supposed to try and pop at all?
Don’t even know what I was doing yesterday and went to go for it on the first big jump at breck and basically initiated a turn so early it looked like I was trying to butter, edge caught and I just fell over the jump onto the knuckle.
SofaKingSickyeah everyone seems to agree a really key tip to keep in mind when learning switch takeoffs is you take off then you start spinning (especially for just a switch 180 or similar). just do a bunch of them and keep that in mind, you don't need to be in a hurry, the worst case scenario is what, you land a little sideways? whereas like you said catching an edge on the takeoff can destroy you
