Most of us have been down that learning curve, keep at it, watch the line the experienced guys take. You should get to a point where ultimately the only reason you need a spotter is for tire placement - you already know the line you want to take but you can't see underneath by yourself.

I got a little cocky in St. George last year and took a different line without a spotter on a rather tricky obstacle and wound up in a big mess almost on my side (pictures in the Event Photos section I think). It was a dumb thing for me to do and I wasted everybody's time (it was a pre-run otherwise I wouldn't have tried it) - so it was a good learning moment for me .
