I'm posting a session vid because some people (not just H4L) have asked about how to drop-in / jump-in.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxB7fv6XlBg

This video assumes you drop in pretty well already.

Enjoy!

I did my best to look for a simple/normal/basic drop in tutorial, but this is the closest I could find. Yes, I've SEEN many drop-ins, and I've been TOLD how to do it, but I was hoping there would be some kind of combination of the two. If someone could point me toward one, or make one, that'd be great. I'm hoping that with more knowledge about what I should be doing, I'll be better able to overcome my initial fear of trying it. :\

Thanks Dave, that's exactly what I needed: I can drop in fine but am still a bit wary of "jumping" in - I guess I'll just have to "fall" off a small ledge "on purpose" and slide onto my pads. . . and when I realise it's not so bad I'll be ok to do the Jump-In.


Oh, and I was wondering: where do you do these tutorials? You got your own half-pipe? Smile

Wow. How did I miss that? I mean, I knew that Merlyn obviously had a special relationship with the owner of the park, but I figured it was close friend, relative, rep of big shoe corp or something... I had no idea he actually owned the place. I guess that's about as close a relationship as one can get with the owner of a place, eh? hehe

Oh, and thanks for making a new drop in video for me, Lar... hidu... I mean, Nexuiz1028. I'm looking forward to it. Smile

I believe he has part ownership, not complete. But dont quote me.


Anyways for anyone learning to jump in, id REALLY suggest sanding off your brakes, i depended on my brakes for so long that i did NOT expect the speed boost from not braking on the way in so im still getting use to it and my pump timing is still off (still working onnn it Very Happy) so yeah, anyone doing vert sand off your lead foot brakes.
