On the drop technique, I demonstrated the technique and also how to style it in the air too and Dave followed suit. A body position correction exercise followed and then we moved onto the skills trail itself. Pre jumping, Pumping and absorbing, rock gardens, steps and drops were linked to berms, flat, switchback and off camber turns.
We moved onto the 6ft tabletop and gap jump and he quickly rode the tabletop and styled it too before moving over to the gap and doing the same.
Onto the pump and jump trail next and I worked on pumping, jumping, manuals and nose manuals to connect Dave to the trail and to his surprise, he quickly got to grips with it all.
