I was never a snowboarder, but after seeing you, Im your biggest fan and critic. You are no where near as great as you are going to be. I was horrified when you caught your chin on the rim of the pipe and I watched the clip over and over and I know what you did wrong.... I used to be a professional platform diver in the 1970s. I even dove off the cliffs in Acapulco. You threw your head and shoulders back, just a fraction, which is how I lost my front tooth on a 3 meter platform dive and ate the diving board with my mouth. My coach used to always tell me " Stand it Up Straight" - "Reach for the sky with your head and your shoulders and keep your head locked in position." No matter how you twist your body, when you leave the pipe, reach straight UP for the sky with your arms,head, and shoulders, and lock it in. Spot with your eyes and never move your shoulders and neck out of straight alignment. You will never catch the edge of the pipe or have that fear again. Practice this tip ~ and of course I will be watching. When you get it perfected, you will get alot more than 23 feet lift.
