What came first for you? Un-Natural or Switch-Up?
I was browsing through an old freeze and came across a guide to doing switch-ups.. the rider said make sure your comfortable with natural and un-natural rail slides before attempting switch ups.. but I remember that I started trying switch ups well before being confident when unnatural on rails...

i was the same as you. i could do switch ups before i could slide unatty.
i was trying switch ups before i was 100% on unnatty slides. its different switching up in to unnatural that it is going straight up unnatural. im still pretty sketchy on switchups though. maybe its because im still pretty sketchy on unnatural slides?
You know you're skiing in the midwest when you can smell the fries from the top.
dude we already took over. i was at alta and i didnt see a single boarder!!!! like WTF!!!!!!!!! its like someone is mad hacking - Ski_Unit_19*$$
I learned switchups from turpin at HN, and he said the unnatty slide will just kind of come over time the more that I do the switchups
switch ups got me more comfortable with unnaty
that and unatural switch 2s

i spin left and slide left foot forward, so for me to do a backside sw up i have to get onto the rail unnatty. so i got comfortable with unnatty first, then learned the switchup.
Switchups for sure

I learned switch ups, and then a fraction of a second later, I did my first unatural grind.
It's wierd though cause on some rails, I'm more afraid to slide it unnatural than I am to switch up it, and I don't know why.

I had tried a un-natural slide before a sw up, but I went for the sw up before being confident un-natty...

I can't switchup. I've slid things unnatural before though. Its much easier than swithing up for me.
i learnt switch 270 on before i learnt 270 on

yeah, switch 270s are generally easier.
hahah i know exactly what article you're talking about.

I learned 270 on way before any other rail variation.

the old bitch at the ski lodge whos tring to get a peice of ass from you the 18 year old kid who just broke his wrist, dont do it you will get crabs.
i had unnaty down way before i tried a switchup. i only tried doing switchups one evening on a pointy ass trap box. they was rull ugly.
i can switch up like a mad man on SOAPSHOES though. any direction you want, baby, just so long as the rails low.

Weird, I can do almost all 4 270 outs (un natural slide backside 270 out still eluding) and I still can't switch up! Fuck, shoot me now.
