    ive just learned to air out of a 7ish foot quarter with an 8 foot extension...
    basically i just started going up and carving really high (just riding up and then back down), then once i was comfortable with that i went up at a like a 45 degree angle and did a little hop close to the bottom then just gradually got higher and higher until i got up to the coping (which im at now)...just go as straigh as possible to the quarterpipe that way you are forced to do the 180 better and youll get the airs faster...
