I have been skiing for 2 weeks now at an indoor park in New Zealand. It's a pretty mean place to learn. I'm 12. So far I have learnt like 3s, 3s over boxes, fakie 1s, 270s out of a suicide rail switch onto street type rails and yeah. Any tips on how to get better?
just ski backwards... a lot down the hill all the time, never ever ski forwards unless your going to a jump or something. this will gain you comfort in skiing switch, then when u step it up to hit jumps and rails switch ull feel a lot better. learn to carve switch
Haha, as far as that switch thing, the other day I got bored of rails cuz none of my mates were there, so i was just carving down the side that's not terrain park fakie. It was sooooooo sick!!! I gained a lot of confidence I think. It's mean fun.
for 5s, just go for it on a remarkable bigger kicker than on your first threes, i did em first on something like 30, if you have the balls, you wont have any problems to get em around, just look where you go, at least since 270 you will see the landing and than you just have to bring another 270 down while you will be able to see pretty everything that is important,
than you need to be pretty comfortable when riding and landing switch
"for reals is everyone in here kidding?? OK first of all if you dont know what chads gap is thats kinda lame. Secondly They have been hitting chads gap for some time now. Im surprised now one has seen the cllip of candide thovex sticking a D spin over chads gap. Its kinda been around alot and been in a few articles." - TravisMC in a thread where everyone made fun of the creator who asked if chads had been hit with skis. thx alot
Learn EVERYTHING all directions. Do all your spins left side, rightside, switch and regular before moving onto the next trick, and all railslides left foot forward and right foot forward. It'll make you such a good skier in the long run. If I was learning again from scratch, that's how I'd do it.
Fine then, I'll try to get sum vids. I had skied about 4 times for half an hour on rentals, not doing rails or jumps. And it's not like I have perfect style, and + my 540's aren't very big, only like 3ft high or even less.
Ohhh yup poutine lol... never actually heard of it, but we go through the french fries like they're going out of fashion man! They are great with tomato sauce... and to other people who are giving me heaps about being cockky and stuff, I ski a lot in a week and i'm one of the most useless skiiers there. Other people do rodeos and stuff. I know one guy who could frontflip and backflip after 3 weeks of skiing. A guy who works there can backflip off of a suicide rail. Believe me, I wasn't saying i'm good.
