Vert air question
: So is the secret to grabs to just compress and never jump?
: Thats my only worry. I dont want to flatbottom again.
: It was fun! Rained again but maybe OK this afternoon.

Emphatically 'YES'. Never jump. Always let the speed carry you up and out of the ramp.

Now, in situations where a ramp does not quite reach vert, you'll have to do what I call little push offs. Not quite jumps, but you definitely have to direct your body so that it does not drift out over the deck on top.
