Hi guys.
I have been doing some pretty big drops to flat in street lately. But i have only been riding for about 6 months and i'm not landing "smoothly" or cleanly. I will post a video tomorrow. But i just wanted some tips to land softly or clean. Thanks guys

sure, landing back tire first is a pretty common thing to do. On big drops some people like to really extend the rear more to hit the ground early and soften the landing. Speed is also a really good way to land smooth.

Back wheel first, with the weight a bit backwards.

BACK WHEEL FIRST

Just straighen your legs before impact. It'll push your back wheel down and virtually 50% of any impact will be absorbed through the wheel first , not your wrists/ ankles when you land double tire.

Land with all your weight on the front! Haha just kidding. Back wheel first. For a while I didn't know that, and I bent my front rim and hurt my wrist jumping an 8-set.

By the way, when doing that kind of stuff, dont be afraid, if you try to bail in the last moment cause you shitted your pants you will eat bad shit.
