Jumping Critique Please :)

Hello everyone! You guys could critique me on my riding. Be as blunt as you would like. Oh and sorry if most of the pictures look terrible, they are screenshots of paused videos.

Make this any harder!!! I find that you are doing extremly well. Your heels are down and legs in the correct position! Your back is flawless! Your release loooks good. Keep up the good work!

What is see is you're pitching with your knees, which is why your lower leg is sliding back and your pelvis (thus your entire upper body) is tipping forward slightly.
Other wise, I can't really see anything obvious that wrong, I like that you're looking forward over the jumps and seem to be a very confident rider. :)

You must live near me because Action Sports Imaging is a local photographer. Zip code 11976 is me.

Anyway, your leg is almost perfect, could be a little itty bit more forward. Arch your back more and lower your upper body a touch more. And work on your heel.

Otherwise you look really, really good! Nice release, good eyes, your body is centered over the saddle, toes are forward, very nice! Only very minor stuff to work on. [=

Thanks everyone so very much! I won't pinch my knees anymore and will sink those heels down! :) I love critiques because they tell you thing you and your trainer might have missed since you are freezing movement and really picking it down into pieces. You also get many different opinions.

Oh that's funny, my zip code is 11766.

To take screenshots with a mac keyboard you just press command, shift, and 3 together. You should hear a "shutter" noise and they should end up on you desktop.
