Hey guys and girls! I recently got a pair of twintips, and I am SO CRAP I can't do any tricks. Can anyone give me any advice on how I can get started?
Thanks in advance,
First...realize that everyone starts from the begining, so ignore assholes who try to make you feel like you suck.
Being a comfortable skier helps ~ but for jib'n some of the best actually suck at skiing outside the park. I am a bump skier who transitioned into park skiing (but i still spend most my time in the bumps)
Just start going into the parks and start small, get comfortable in the air. Practice skiing backwards and doing 180's w/o going off hits, just jump and spin around.
Visualizing is key...watch videos, and don't be afraid to approach people in the park and talk to them and get tips from them. I landed my fourth attempt 360 with the help from a 13yr old kid..i am 24. Lots of good advice out there.
Good luck...stick to it

Yeah I have been skiing for a long time but just started park skiing this year. I think just practicing on snow 180s is a start. Then just practice straight airs off small tables and kickers. Once you feel comfortable in the air start out with some simple grabs, like a saftey (keep skis together and reach under your left boot with your left hand...do oppisate if you grab with right hand), then move to mute and other grabs. Then Once you have those down, just practice spinning. For spinning just practice on a tramp or without skis at home. Then go to the park. Hit the jump and look the direction you want to spin and use your shoulders for momentum. Spot the landing. Presto you can have a 180 or 360. Just keep practicing and putting different moves together! Then your there. Never feel scard to ask. I would say 80% of the people are willing to help you out. SO just go out there and rip it up!

Yea just work on 180's an get all your grabs down. Start off by throwing grabs 180's an 180 grabs off of small tables. Add your own style into it too. A 180 off a big kicker is a super sick trick. But very hard too when u go big. Just keep workin. I also heard if u jack off before u ski It gives you bigger balls to throw bigger shit

Is it cheating if the girl is from another country?
Some one please help !!!
definately learn how to ski well, it helps a ton, i used to be hardcore mogul skier, but i kinda got less interested and did park a ton, and i basically lost my skiing...maybe its just me, but learn to ski well, and then start with some small hits, like tiny ones, and just get used to them, do some grabs, maybe 180s or 360s, u just have to try and commit, committing is the most important thing ever, watching ski movies helps too, like if u can slow mo, u can wtahc how they do it, and it helps

start small. check out skiingmotion.com. they describe most of their tricks. go for straght airs first, then add grabs, then spins, then spins with grabs.
