Skateboard Video Vault: Hippy Jump

Aaron Kyro from Braille Skateboarding teaches Lance, who is terrified of Hippy Jumps, to overcome his fear and land it perfectly.  A Hippy Jump is when a skater rides up to an object (usually a rail or chain) and the board goes under the object while the skater jumps above the object and lands back on the board.  It sounds pretty complicated but is really all about timing and spacial awareness.  The proper execution of this trick is crucial because much can go wrong if done incorrectly.  Face-planting on this trick is not uncommon but is easily avoidable with the proper technique.
