With curbs , there is a mental factor of doing a 180 going BACKWARDS off something....like I was spooked to even cab off a curb. It's the "drop" the makes it spooky. I can get some lines going on , but I've been trying to 180 onto a ledge height circle/boobie thing at the park , maybe 2 bike lengths long. I can NOT muster up the balls to cab off it , simply from the fact it's off something and I'm basically timing the hop mentally as I don't look. I managed to get a whimpy half-assed - half cab (haha) but myback tire cased and I almost supermaned my ballsack into my tire-frame. It's higher than a curb but not much , so why is it I'm a pussy haha. It's shitty !
I don't really carve into my halfcabs , I just kinda 180 back to normal. Should I carve into them? When I do , I get noticeably higher from a better hop , but I get unbalanced in air and often put my foot down.
Is it just because the drop factor is why i'm being a bitch? I do NOT want to go cab right when my tire drops and get thrown off my bike like a horse , or go to cab but case and land all fucked up. Carve into it or not?
