your first year you ski with no poles and throw everything you think you can't do and you do it real ugly. next year pick up poles and make your tricks a little cleaner but keep hucking everything. it's the only way to get good fast.
Just tuck it and huck it yo!
hay josh... what you think the speed is like for that jump there?
Oh that's one is about 3 french fries and a pizza cut.
for legit park skiing, like normal jumps and that stuff i started with 3s, then worked on 1s and 5s, then started unatty 3s and 1s and 5s, then i started trying to cork stuff, once i got that down 60% of the time everytime, i moved to working on pipe and getting big straight airs, 5s on both walls and alley-opps on the left wall, i never worried about rails, they were something i knew i could pick up in an afternoon,
To become old and wise...you must first become young and stupid.
you're doing a misty without having done a frontflip!??!
or do you mean you are trying a rodeo?
whateves mine went:
straight air boxes, jibbed boxes, switch offs, 270's on and off, switch ups (still workin on those...)
at the same time:
straight airs on jumps, 180's on fuckin.. everything, butter 1's, 360's, backflips, 540's, sw. 180's sw. 3's, sw corked 3's, 7's... and with each spin id throw in a trucker or a mute or tailgrab
"Don't let schooling get in the way of your education."
first year (15 days)
first straight air, then straight air with grabs, then 360, then 180, then grabbing those spins then boxes, then rails, then kinked boxes and rails, switch 1s switch 3s, then cork 5, and then cork 3
Second year (this year)
tails, blunts, mutes, critical, nose, double tail, added these grabs to my spins w/o dubtail, 540, 720, switch 5, spin off rails and boxes, sw ups, spin on boxes, spin onto downrails, spin onto flat rails, tail press, butter, rodeo, flat ground front flip, backflip, front flip, nearly cork 7 and nearly bio 7

I learned to ski when I was 2 years old, when I was about 3.5 I picked up the poles and was ready for the big dogs. I then takled the summit at bachelor at the ripe age of 4. Later, as my ability grew I started trying 360s off small windlips. Suffering the beatings that I did, and losing the blood that I did I finally brought it into the park(when skiparks started getting parks). I was about 12, and had spread eagles down in the park, but I felt like I could do more. One day I demod a pair of rossi pow-airs. 360s came just like that. Now I had been racing for about a season now, and felt like I was a pretty confident skier. As my technique grew, so did my balls, and they eventually dropped. Now that I had balls to smack on rails, I started to do them. It was about now that I learned to land backwards. 540s were tackled. A few years passed, 7s and 9s were learned, my rail technicality increased and my backcountry skills rocketed. it was about this time that I graduated highschool, went to college and now I ski every few weeks. Anyways, the weed is better in college.
Power destroyed is power reborn in the pattern or destruction.
Just started in the park a couple of weeks ago, and since I live in belgium I don't have much of a park, except one with with 3 kickers and 6 rails that's located in a huge refridgerator in holland. Started out in Val Tho doing some jumps, but I sucked untill some young kids gave me some advice like keeping hucked in the air, popping of harder,... then started doing a grab under my feet (is that a safety?), now trying to make tailgrabs but my style doesn't look like much, this saturday I've got someone how will coach me a bit so I'm going to work on 360 and i seriously want to start hitting/landing switch.
Haven't been doing to much on a box though, just jumping on it and slide down but that get's kind of boring... what would be the next thing to do?
