The skills check showed me that I needed to work on Adam and terry's body positioning as errors had crept in since last years session and I could see why. Bev needed work on her looking and body positioning and needed her mental skills developed too.
I began with the application of the skills in the drop technique and as I worked on Bev's mental skills I was able to develop Terry and Adam's riding on the larger of the 3 drop at the same time. It wasn't long before she was landing perfectly and used her mental skills to decide to ride the middle drop too.
From there we worked on carrying speed through a berm and later added a second berm for them to flow through. Things were really going well and we took a break for coffee to allow the learning to settle and we resumed by working on the skills trail and their fluidity. I broke the trail down and soon they were pumping, cornering and riding through rocks and down a step too. Bev's confidence just grew and grew and her old fear of riding into bomb holes and steep up slopes had disappeared as Bev now controlled her environment.
Bev declared herself too tired to continue after 4 hours but I continued with Terry and Adam on linking drops into corners and it was awesome to see Adam ride the largest drop this time as he wasn't confident that he could ride it last time but now they were both sailing off the 4ft drop and linking it to the corner that followed.
We moved to the 6ft tabletop to dial their body positioning in take off and then they used their mental skills to ride the 6ft gap jump too a good few times.
Our session ended as they were now mentally drained and an awesome session came to an end.
