Train this noob
iv haveint skied in 4 years and i want to get back into it this season, im a pretty confident skiier but im a big failure in the park (well in the past havint really tried much) . i plan on buying the new k2 public enemys good move?, i want to start learning tricks because skiing in ontario is pretty useless otherwise, any advise on how to start out, thanks.
im from ontario...so i know what you mean...those skis should be fine...i would say take it real easy for the first bit...if youre gonna take some air...start small...work on a good take off and landing...staying forward in your boots is always better than leaning back...and an nice straight slightly forward pop to get some air wouldnt be a bad thing to think about....as for rails...think about running as fast as you can and jumping on a skateboard...i dunno...hope this helps....
yeah just start getting comfortable on the little stuff, takeing off, landing, rails etc.
if i were you i would start out on some easy LONGISH(if its short its hard to get used to balancing and looking at the end of the rail) flat rails. start out slow but not to so make sure you will have enough to get on atleast. when come up to just kinda do a 90 and keep your feet at shoulder width apart and keep your skis flat. do hockey stop. make sure you have your knees bent a little. and look at the end of the rail.
i learned rails with poles so that might help you or it might make it harder. but i found it easier to start without them. then i just ditched the poles
yeah just start out small landings and take offs. and when you get comfortable just go a little bigger
for rails start out on a long flat rail thats reletivly low to the ground. just come in with atleast enough speed to get on the rail, for a start. then pop a little 90 on keep the feet shoulders length apart AND DONT LOOK AT YOUR FEET look at the end of the rail keep your knees bent somewhat. and keep your skis flat on the rail. then getting off just do a little 90 off.
i hope that helped
