    hit it with the right ammount of speed...







    youll learn more by going out and riding than asking questions on here...sorry dude...just go out and ride...and soon enough youll learn what to do...or at least what not to do...

    well...
    1. go towards the takeoff with proper amount of speed.
    2. preload into the lip.
    3. grab your front brake.
    4. squawk like a chicken.
    5. get back up after you crash.
    6. do it again.

    those are my 6 steps to dirjumping to purchase the whole book go here www.purchasethewholebook.com
    just kidding.
    you really need to go out there and try it. good luck
    p.s. my previous thing about purchasing the book is dumb...

    Find a local ripper and watch him jump. Ask him to watch you, and give pointers. If you tell a guy he's an awesome jumper and ask for help, chances are he will, unless he's a total dick. You can look for people in your area in the regional forums here or at ridemonkey.com.
