I believe it was before this past 09-10 season when I made a thread called "How long did it take you to get sick at rails" I made this thread because I am an avid video watcher on newschoolers and I see kids slay rails every day. I just wondered how long it took everyone to get so good because I want to "slay" rails also.
I received several very positive responses to this thread which motivated me to accomplish my goals this season. I made a trick list comprised of backside and frontside 270s out and switchups, switch on, and 270 on. I accomplished all of these tricks and am very happy to have the building blocks of rails.
Now it's summer and I made a new backyard setup to practice on. I can do my 270s out and switchups, but I just CANT seem to turn my switchups into combination tricks such as k-feds, britneys, etc. It is so frustrating because I think my setup is definitely good enough to do these tricks on. I have trouble when I get to un ral and I just can't seem to even get to the point of trying these combos.
My new question is........How long did it take you guys to go from Switchups to combos? And what can I do to make it happen smoother and quicker?
