    Brakeless? It could work, just be carefull haha. If you don't wanna hit a jump when your halfway down the run, well too bad, you'll have a hard time just stopping by doing a front or back footjam.

    Why would one want to go brakeless? Don't underrate your ability to stop.
    Plus, a back brake is a useful tool for manipulating the pitch of the bike in the air.
    Jump it onto something off of something or over something.

    There's more to freeriding than dirt jumps.

    Might wanna steepen the jumps and learn to boost taller before you make larger gaps.

    So you "mastered" one jump? Build another one a little bigger after it. When you get bored with those two, build a 3rd, then a 4th, etc... After the first two or three think about making hip jumps and rollers and berms (i.e. don't put the jumps all in a straight line one after the other). Before long, you'll have a proper DJ spot. Post directions when it's done.
