We began with the drop technique to work on both the physical skills set and the mental skills set too and soon they were all riding the largest drop and landing perfectly.
Onto the skills trail and we began working on isolated segments before linking the whole trail together via control areas and line choice. Pumping, rock gardens, steps, jumps and drops were all linked to bermed, off camber switchback and flat turns. Soon, everyone of them was self diagnosing any errors and they got smoother and faster as they applied their new skills sets.
Next, we moved to a 6ft tabletop and in a few moves they all sailed over what was for some their 1st ever jump and some even rode the 6ft gap jump side too as they were able to answer their mental skills questions positively.
Finally, we moved to another trail to link the steep drop off from earlier to the sections that came before it and we linked drop offs, corners, jumps, pumping and other sections together way easier than ever before. Mentally the group were tiring as errors started to creep in and the heat of the day didn't help so ^hrs after we began the session came to a close and we celebrated the session in the beer garden of the local pub.
Amazing improvements guys.
