i always pretzel curbs when im walking around. people look at me like im an idiot but then i afterbang it and then they usually cheer or ask for my autograph or something.
I allways do late shifty 180s down short stairs and stuff, a lot more fun than to walk down them..
To pretzel curbs helps you to get the feel for it and then it is a lot easyer to actually nail them on real rails once you know how the rotations works..
So for all of you still working on those pretzels, practise them without skiis! It helps a lot! Thats atleast how i learned them... its great!
Flatland running is super fun, but even more fun if there is small drops to handdrag and spin off, or stones to bonk, imagination is all thats needed.. yes you do look like a retard.. but its fun as hell!
or maybe rollerblade....
