    go faster. and lean forward more..... keep your weight on the pedals when you are taking off, and when you land...


    i say go faster because it is always better to over-shoot than to come up short.

    on dubs, but if he's jumping tables, I think a case is far safer when learning.

    my only advice is to relax, trust the lip (don't fight it throwing you in the air), and visualize your flight. there are a million little details in between but in the end, your body will fly just fine if you let it and the more you start thinking about things, the less likely you'll relax and let it sail.

    exactly...


    stay LOOSE in the air. don't brace yourself for a smooth landing, you will probably eat **** or get really close if you stiffen up in the air thus landing crooked.

    I read it three times, but it still sounds wrong.

    The original poster said he kept landing on his back. I say he's pulling up too hard and needs to suck up the lip and stay forward. Don't jerk up on the bars, instead stay centered with your head always over the center of the bike, no matter what the angle.

    For more height, push into the lip, then spring up and forward with your legs.

    Don't ride "ON" the bike, instead use it as an extention of your body.

    better to land like he did than to go OTB and take a digger w/ all the downward momentum one has landing a dubb. but if you stay loose you will be able to balance out a lot easier (like, so you land perfect on the tranny).
