I caught some air today!!
: So what do you call it when your skates are not on the ground for a couple seconds? Whatever it is, it feels great. I didnt know air was only from the coping lol. I would appreciate having my post removed since this wasnt proper.

I'm sorry if I have caused some misunderstanding. Your post is as proper as can be! I didn't want to create the impression of critizing your posting. I only wanted to give some hint on how to improve technique. I try to clarify a bit: I call jumping the process of excerting force on the ground and thereby leaving it. You can get some air this way. I don't believe you can get 2 m air this way. The technique for high airs is more like the one I tried to describe and very much helped by having a coping.
