I havent been doin this for long, not even a week. But I really wanna be able to jump w/o faceplanting again! lol Ive read bout doing a jump...but not the landing. I think I did good on the going up, I kept my knees bent then got to the wake in like jumped. but i fell face first. Tips are greatly appreciated!

New and addicted rider,
-Justin

make sure when you extend your legs you pull your knees up... i had some reeeaally painful falls by extending my legs and i'd do some half a 360 raley to back haha

the biggest thing is edge out for your first few jumps, don't bother with leg extensions, i like to go from my edge to a standing straight position and begin my edge

your first few don't worry about leg extension

keep the handle close to your hips. if you don't do that you'll end up doing a railey/faceplant/bellyflop.

Two hands on the rope. look out at the horizon when landing.

alright, so for the leg extension part, what should I do? if I dont extend will I still be able to get air?

youll get air, but very little, Extend your legs at the top of the wake and you will get boosted up. Once you get your pop you can do whatever you want, just wait till you get the pop before you do anything

Alright, so when I go up I should prolly not extend really far til I get more used to it and better? And how much pop does a Hyperlite Logic 139 have? (im new) thanks!
