ask scott vail? oh god haha... thats beat to death.
anyways,for me it was all about commiting. over the summer i just grew some balls, and went for it. after a while i managed to stay on the rail longer and longer till i could hit it till the end. rollerblading also helped some...
If you can do boxes, a rail is the exact same thing. Get a good bit of speed so you can make it to the end, feet shoulder width apart the whole way, and start looking at the end before you get on. It keeps you on straight from start to finish. Leaning back is probably the easiest way to get your skis too close together and wash out, you won't catch an edge if you trust it.
The third integral is the hypervolume of a four dimensional object.
You just need to practice and focus, focus and commit to all the small things, commit to the 90 degree on, put your weight towards you front ski and look at the end of the rail, just practice and eat shit for a lil while, you'll get it
if u can do boxes good than fo real man just sack up and hit an easy rail i promise there not hard at all a nice easy straight square rail just go for it i promise u its not very hard
