My advice would be learn how to land properly, no matter what the situation, you will never always land the same way. Also, know how to handle your machine.

Today a guy was about 17' in the air, trying to do a triple, he came up short, and had he hit the throttle, he probably would have just bottomed out, but his nose hit and he broke the windsheild with his face/nosepiece on his helmet.


He knew what he was doing though, but like I said, anything can happen (well, i didn't say that before, but I did now...) Just be careful, and if you are gonna be stupid, make sure you don't mangle other people.

Keep the sled straight and even while in the air. Grab the brake to tip forward, push the throttle to tip back and lean, etc... Go easy on both brake and throttle. They make more of a difference then you would think. When I jump, I usually head for the jump with some speed, then let off the throttle right when I hit the end of it. Just some advice for ya.

Perfect advice ercik.

Start slow and don't over-do the throttle. Get your speed early, and stay level with the sled, land 1st, then go go go................

Yep, don't stay on the gas all the way on the jump. This prevents going all vertical in the air with the machine, and it saves the face of the jump.

Oh ok cool that helps a bunch. here is some advice to u. Dont let a person that is inexperienced ride ur sled. Even if its over a few bumps. Because they can manage to screw that up.. I just found that out the hardway today *couph**couph*$200*couph**couph*Windshield & that thing it sits on *couph**couph* :)
