Performing a jump pad hitbox extension jump in Sentinel Beach

Jump pad hitbox extension, sometimes called a spin launch, is a movement technique exclusive to Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy that is used to activate a jump pad from further away than usual. It can be performed by using a spin attack to increase the size of Jak's hitbox, followed by jumping using the launch pad.

Jump pad hitbox extension can be used to make Jak catch on overhead terrain mid-jump and perform a lower jump in several locations in Boggy Swamp, saving time in a speedrun. It can also be used to go out of bounds in the Forbidden Temple.
