Boys, I'm just gonna throw this one out there cause it's been bothering me... I've been skiing for 15 years (I'm 20) mostly in Quebec but I lived in Europe for a year. Technically, I'm a very good skier, and I love hitting up the park, and I'm pretty good off jumps and stuff. Here's the deal though: I see guys hitting rails like it ain't no thang, both full speed or really slow and it looks super easy. I can hit boxes with relative ease, and I plan on picking up a pair of Afterbangs this season to commit to getting better.
I've never really tried rails, mostly due to the fact that I didn't have the right skis and it freaks me out a bit. Any tips to get the basics down? Is it literally as easy as going fast, hopping a 90 degree spin and bending the knees or what else should I know? I don't wanna hear about 270 off or anything I just wanna stomp the basics and take it from there. No need to slam me on this thread, I'm just looking for some help.
