So I know I should of searchbarred, but I don't know how to searchbar within a cult and plus I need an answer specific to my situation.
I can hit boxes with relative ease. If they're really down, I usually fall extra-super-hard, but if it's a pretty mellow up-down or flat-down, I can do it, no problem. Switch out too. I know, I'm cool. Flat boxes are obviously no problem either. But when I get to rails, my situation looks something like this:
Which is to say, I wreck really hard. I am building a set up so that I can go into my backyard in a relatively low-risk scenario and learn these motherfuckers before I'm faced with the oh-so-enjoyable task of learning to hit a rail in the hardpacked, 15-degree ice rinks that are Stratton's parks. So my question is this:
Should I build a 10-foot rail, which would obviously be easier to learn on because it's shorter, but would not allow me to learn much other than a straight slide, or.
Should I build a 15-foot rail, which would be harder to reach the end of but would allow me to progress more?
Keep in mind, every time I've hit a rail, I've fallen backwards and eaten it. It is very, very, very important that I learn this skill, and the right set up would be helpful.
