Rails but urban rails in fact not like boxes in your park.
Once you land a trick on a jump it is pretty easy replicate again now that you have the feeling, but urban rails make everything 10x harder and takes a long ass time for 1 trick.
I would rather see a huge floating spin with a clean grab as opposed to say a 2 on, blind swap, front 4 out. I know they both take huge amounts of time to learn, but i guess i just favor people hucking off big shit.
sliding on fake shit isnt skiing. it can be fun, and a hellauva time for people who do it, but it isnt skiing.
normally people are super into rails because they lack a real mountain, and you can only do so much on a little hill, so they get their thrill from rails. good shit. But i am of the opinion that if it isnt a part of the mountain, then it isnt real skiing.
Sagging pants, wide stance, fat skis, powder in trees, corked three's with steeze.
Jumps, you don't even have to know how to ski to hit a rail,whereas you have to have good form and a solid pop to be able to get good at jumping. Generally the people who ski longer are better at jumps and the kids who just started skiing like rails better.
And Usain Bolt is running down the side of the field, he's got the ball, he's still running, WHERE THE F**K IS HE GOING?!?! USAIN BOLT HAS LEFT THE BUILDING...WITH THE BALL.-BIG-DUMP
rails take repetition to get good at. as soon as you get over that one time fear of hucking something huge, its all the same. (this doesnt count invert stuff/ and or urban stuff for rails, or basically higher grade anything) just as the basic. sliding a flat bar. vs. hitting a 15 footer. to get that bar down pat you have to slide it a lot. just to get used to it and everything. when hitting the jump its a straight air and then you can start floating spins. (lets say 3's) it all depends. but from a basic standpoint i'd say rails are harder in principal
