When you are riding your Razor scooter there are tons of fun things you can do. You can race, or cruise, do tricks, ride ramps and you can jump. Jumping on your scooter can be dangerous so make sure that you wear the right protective gear when trying jumps. There are also tons of different was you can jump. You can ollie, which is just jumping off the ground. You can jump off curbs or ledges, commonly called an acid drop. The best type of jumping is gaining speed on your scooter and launching off a jump or ramp. You can build your own jump or razor has a ramp that could be used to jump off of that you can buy.

Before we talk about jumping and building jumps we need to talk about the landing. The landing is the most important part of the jump. Why? Because it is most likely on the landing that you can injure yourself, but not just that the landing is where you get all the style points for the jump. If you land badly the reaction from the on viewers is not that great, but if you stick the landing then you make the whole jump look smooth and awesome. One of the best ways to land is to have a ramp on the other side to land on. This way the momentum of the down angle will help you land smoother. Make sure this ramp is very wide and not too steep so you have a large landing space. If you are going to land on the ground make sure to bend your knees on the landing to absorb the impact in your legs. This well help you land smoother and safer.

Letís move on to building a jump or buying a jump. Building a jump can be tricky. You want the bottom of the jump to be as flush with the ground as possible. For this you can use a thin pliable piece of metal, that way when you ride your scooter onto the jump your wheel will not have to go over a little lip. Plus the metal will protect the lip from any rain or water and help the jump to last longer. Do not build the jump too high to start. I think anywhere from 8 to 12 inches is a good place to start jumping. This way you can practice, but have tons of fun doing it. Plus when you jump off an 8 to 12 inch jump you do not need a ton of speed so you can enjoy the jump right in your driveway. Do not make the jump to long because you want a good launch, but do not make it extremely steep either because then you cannot prepare for the jump that well. Make sure you reinforce the middle of the jump if needed. If it bows down when riding over it nail piece of wood underneath to support the middle. And lastly you can use any type of wood to build the jump.

If you do not want to build a jump, Razor has a solution for you. They have built a ramp/jump that will be perfect for you. It is made out of plastic and is very flush with the ground. It is a soft plastic so you will not get hurt as bad if you fall on it. They also have a rail that fits perfectly with the ramp if you want to try rail sliding. Always use the same safety precautions whether you are jumping off a home made jump or a store bought jump. Jumping can be dangerous so I will say again to always wear a helmet and protective gear, and have fun.
