When I started hitting jumps I would do it with a friend riding next to me, someone who had been riding park for a long time, and knew about the speed. I found it way easier learning the speed that way. hope that made sense.
yo your seriuosely trying to learn how to shred on a forum?
just hit the hill man, youll get better
who said all he wants to do is jump and grind? the kid's learning how to ski.. have fun in the woods and drop some shit that he may come accross.
don't just live in the park, youll never get any better at skiing that way
