i usually rail with my right foot forward, so wen im on the rail or box, is it easier to spin to the left again and turn my back for a sec or just go unnatural the other way
"So I ask for a 10 and the guy leaves and comes back and says, 'I have a nine.' ... 'Great,' I said. 'Cause while you were gone my toes were severed off. Normally what you just said would seem retarded but due to my very recent accident, you're right on.'"
its more whatever feels comfortable for you. fs changes are a little easier because you arent blind when you spin
its the 40 boi
spinning your natural way would be a backside switch up and since you go blind for a second those are harder. unnatural would be a frontside switch up. do a frontside first even though its not your natural way of spinning. they are waaay easier.
You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours!-JEA
if ur gonna switch up blindside, pop onto the box and wind up with ur uper body a little, as if u were gonna spin on...this way you get your momentum spinning the way u want to switch up
for frontside switch ups, i drop my front ski off the edge of the box alittle, like in a pretzel, this stops ur momentum from goin the way you poped on and allows you to push off of the front ski
i grind right foot forward too so when i get onto a rail i usually keep spiining but jump and do a blindside switch up. you just gotta comit to it
A friend would bail you out of jail. A true friend would be sitting next to you in the cell saying "man that was awesome"
FS swith ups are easier to commit to a learn but yeah blind side are easier once u try and figure them out...BS looks cooler 2 but yeah learn FS first

want to keep skiing? help stop global warming
but its easier for you to have a worse fall.
I learned BS and i dont know how to do FS yet. I havent perfected it yet but its getting there.
I just first tried on easy flat boxes, went really slow onto the box and tried it. There really is no grip on the box so iits kind of hard, just commit. When you jump onto the box, throw your shoulder/upper body around a little more then usual and then once your on, bend knees and set up for a little pop, and just try to swing around. Make sure to keep looking at the end of the box once you spun, since your body will turn that way.
