what's up guys kevin here from snowboardprocamp in this video i've got five tips from learning how to jump on your snowboard if you can ride confidently and with some speed then you're ready to get your board into the air these five tips will help you to learn with good technique at your own pace and in a way that keeps you safe the first tip is to start small there are all kinds of natural side hits rollers to jump off outside the park get into the habit of spotting places that jump and hitting them every chance you get even inside the park you can skip the take-off and jump off the knuckle the second tip is to set up your approach to the jump how you set up for the jump will determine your landing so you want to make sure you get this right set yourself up with your knees bent back straight hands over your nose and tail head looking forward and board running straight and flat the third tip is to decide how you're going to get your board into the air your options are to ollie nollie pop off both feet or Coast and let the jump through the work I'd recommend to Kosar pop off the jump to start then once you've mastered those learn how to ollie an ollie the fourth tip is to bend your knees in the air when you're just starting to jump it can be hard to be aware of what you're doing in the air but bending your knees is key bending your knees will help keep your balanced keep your board level and it will help you absorb the landing bending your knees will also make it easier for when it comes time to learn grabs the fifth tip is to land straight it's very common to want to slam on the brakes as soon as you land that can cause you to crash land straight and then control then gradually turn to your heels to slow down if you feel like you have to slam on the brakes then you are probably riding into the jump with too much speed to start one bonus tip and is probably the most important tip is to check the landing almost every snowboarder I know has a story of hitting a jump and there being someone in the landing always check to make sure the landing is clear and that you have lots of room to ride the jump out have fun out there learning to jump guys for even more bonus tips head over to my patreon page where I'll be posting bonus tips for every video I made thanks as always for watching and I'll see you in the next video

    Pointing the board flat before the jump? Isn’t it easy to catch an edge like that?

    My friend and I went to a beginner park this weekend and it ended up being a bad time for my friend. She wasn’t doing well and kept falling while I was progressing quickly and didn’t fall much. I skateboard occasionally and can do a few tricks, my friend is only able to ride. Didn’t realize the skateboarding helped so much with learning snowboarding as well. It was interesting, but I felt bad for my friend. She gave up, while I was having a blast.

    When I land small jump i always catch my edge, like in an instant after landing so as soon as I land I kinda freak out and try to carve. How to I land smooth and flat on the board without catching the edge?

    Doesn’t rocket/camber play a major roll in landing jumps? I remember the first few times I snowboarded (2005), jumps were easier to land. The Boards felt stable. On my most recent trips, jumps where a lot harder. The boards felt less stable.

    Do you know if Burton rental boards went from being cambered to rockered over the years?

    I found Ollie's were more comfortable to do then coasting or bending knees because I skated before

    Yeah staying level and bending the knees. Starting small too. That is what I need to do. Thanks for the tips
