Sif is good, Si is good. I use sif for up's. I've tried using it for
more, but I always end up bailing or messing up. I'm scared to do sif
drops aswell. I hit my balls once, never again.

SI just looks like your jumping around holding your balls (no offence
).

None taken. Although its a personal prefrence of look and feel, the
SI'ers are way more experienced.

I don't know about that. I can't to jack sif, but si I'm alright. I
think sif offers a more experienced rider much more adjustability and
comfort. Si seems like the crutch to me. I mean, if you had to ride one
or the other and that's it, sif is the better choice.... I'm still going
to ride Si all of the time.

I think all riders should use both because they both helpful for
different things.
I think it's hard to tell whether side hops are better sif or si but I
can do them easier sif
SIF


- Drops are better: No ball bash and you can bend your knees when you
hit the ground taking most of the pressure off the uni and the saddle
- Higher ups
- side hops



SI


- skinnies
- side hops

You can tuck in a side hop even if your going for distance.
