Tommie Bennett is probably my favorite snowboard instructor (well, online instructor) and he did a powerful video about extra-large (XL) jumps on your snowboard and how to overcome your fear of the big ones.
He broke his back before and has to face his fears himself. We can all relate.
9 minutes that you will not regret (starts on the 14:33 min mark).
- Carve, carve, carve. Keep a solid speed.
- Go off the jump even (arms, shoulders and hips on the same direction)
- Once in the air, bring your knees up.
- Landing in critical, don’t bend your body.
- Have fun and be safe.
