Scared for life?

OOOhhh, Yesterday we went at our local dirt jump with shovel, and we kinda rebuild a jump by giving him 15 more feets... So I was the first to try it but I went too fast and I landed after the land, Now I am just scared of doing it again, I don't know what to do, I getting the speed but when I am getting in front of the monster I stop.

I did pretty much the same thing at some dirtjumps I went to so the next time I just went pretty dam slow just enough to clear the jumps, and just went bigger from there. Just go for it and wear a helmet, lol.

Do what I do. **** it, huck it. I never think. From the words of Sweatshop Union - "Fears Keep Us Chained, We can leave anyday, keep the faith". It just means have faith in yourself and don't be scared of the jump, becuase you can and will do it.

Id work up to it if you're not comfortable. Confidence and speed are your friends and key to taking on stuff you're not used to....but they dont play well with each other at first.
