So what did he do wrong? Lean to far forward? Preload the back spring wrong? I have never did a jump bigger than a couple feet so I'm curious. I would not want to have that happen to me.

looks like not enough speed and he didnt lean far enough back to take the weight off his front tire. That sucks big time.

It looked like he was leaning to far forward with not enough speed and it sent him into an endo.

It looked like he was sitting down at the base of the jump (all the way through it actually) which would preload his rear and add not being on the throttle at the correct time seems have been the problem to me.
