Jus' ride man.....cool you got a park....

"Dropping in" is easier learned (I think) by dropping in at a good angle first. Don't drop in perpendicular to the ramp, roll in at an angle. This makes the drop less sharp to begin with, and keeps your chainwheel off the coping. Once you get the hang of that, you can start dropping straight in....and then even "hopping" in.

just ride around at first till u start getting feel of things,
for me, droping in was a lot scarier than it looked, it was a lot easier than it looked too, q-pipes r wierd, take ur time learing imo, dont try to air it first time
