Eh freaked out about ramp I built

Ok, so havent been here awhile due to the lack of me having time to do things because I ride too much. Well anyway me and a bunch of friends live by delcastle park in Delaware. So there are some little trails there that are fun to ride at and we always have a good time and make jokes and chill so thats that. So anyway we all go up there with like 5 shovels and we build like 6 ramps I am scared to hit one of the bigger ones its like 2 feet tal with a lot of concave I mean I've done it on my trek 6700 but Im kinda scared to do it on my redline single x just because like it doesn't have any shocks or anything plus I'm kind of new to riding my bmx because I have always rode my mountain. Please dont thrash at me because I know some of you may see a two foot jump with "a lot of concave" something thats nothing. So please give me some advice on hitting the jump and landing it. I am just not use to riding a little 20 incher and I need some advice.

Anything is appreciated

John

So what you're saying is that you have a two-foot tall, transitioned ramp. Grow some balls and hit it. That's tiny.

If it's got a flat landing, then you're being a complete and total Vagina McVaginastein.
