Rolling hops are one of the skills that are just starting to get fun for me.
It's one of those skills that have finally clicked within the last year.

I use a KH29 with handlebars and have learned to jump from any foot placement.
Of course, closer to the perfect 5:00/11:00 gives me much more power, but I have learned to compress the tire using my handlebars as well as back pressure.

But ya, I still will weave a bit to help my takeoff but it's slowly becoming not needed as my overall jumping from any foot placement is getting better.
Being ambidextrous will give you twice as many sweet spots too.

I'm riding cross country on trails.
Right now we have three trails with a total 10kms of groomed fat bike trails!
