Hey guys,
I have a 20in. bmx dirt jumper.For some reason when I go off some of the jumps I tilt the bike unintentionally in midair thus making me crash.For example if you where looking straight at me jumping from being then the bike would be like a forward slash in midair like the bike would be like this ==> /
A lot of the time I do this but sometimes I do not.My question is what am I doing wrong that would make the bike go like this?

I would say to just "relax". When I start getting squirly(more squirly) it's usually because I'm trying too hard,thinking too much,going too fast etc. I'll go to a smaller line,get my flow back then wade back into the bigger stuff.

that's why we drink it here
Practice practice practice. You just haven't found your air legs yet. As time goes on you'll learn how to adjust the bike and throw your weight to position yourself in the air. It's not something that can be explained. Just keep at it. You'll get there.
