Mike and Chris came to me after reading reviews and wanted to learn to jump. As they both skateboarded before I was able to use their muscle memory from this to really enhance their skills sets both mentally and physically.
I broke their skills down and formed new techniques as I corrected looking and positioning for them. I worked on drops, steeps, cornering, jumping tabletops and gaps and linking them too!
Dan races nps xc races and wanted to get better technically and understand what he needed to do on a mountain bike. I explained the physical skills and isolated body positioning and looking needed correcting and some very small adjustments made huge differences.
We worked on applying a simple skills set to lots of different environments and linked them together.
For over 6hrs , Dan worked hard on linking his new skills set together. Linking steeps to corners, turning through drop offs, gap jumps, drops, corners, controlling air time and distance, switchbacks and riding over obstacles to name just a few..
I really enjoyed being part of this session as it wasn’t just airtime but was about simple techniques.
What a session it turned into as as soon as I had corrected their set ups and physical skills errors it all clicked. Gaps to 13ft, 14ft tabletops and linking gaps and jumps together, drops, style, berms, wall rides you name it. They even started jumping over each other!
