We moved onto the drop sections and the new body position was something that stunned Gareth as it suddenly became way less effort to drop off stuff.
It wasn't long before we were on the skills trail where I broke the trail in half and worked on linking pre jumping to berms, a flat corner, rock garden, tight berm and switchback. I worked hard on Gareth's cornering and it soon paid dividends.
We moved onto the 6ft tabletop and gap jump and I worked on Gareth's mental skills and it wasn't long before he sailed over his first gap jump over and over with a high5 and a big grin on his face.
For what would prove the final part of this coaching session we moved onto the pump and jump trail where Gareth pumped to generate speed to jump a 9ft tabletop and later I taught him to manual through double and tabletops too!
Great session dude!
