Don't age claim. If anything just say "How's my progression, I've been skiing for _____ years". You phrased the thread as if it's rare to be a 14 year old on this site, when the majority of people on this site are probably 13-16...
It should be a ban-able offense to age claim. This is getting ridiculous

Get some longer skis, keep the poles. Nobody likes watching a sketchy skier without poles, it makes your arm movements so much more pronounced.
You are good for your age, but there are always going to be kids out there with better style and a bigger bag of tricks. If you keep progressing, I could see you getting some help from a local shop or something. Stay in school
You're good, but this guy is 14 and has got most rail tricks out there, 810's out, 630's on, Dub 12, Dub Flat, Sw 10, Sw 12 and pulls it with way more style. And he's not on here asking if he's good. Watch his other stuff and you'll see he's consistent in pow, park and urban and he's 6ft already so it's even harder for him to pull off this shit. Ski for fun dude, there's others out there who are twice as good as Alex at 15.
Why do people feel the need to be the warden of threads? These forums are created to allow people to post absolutely anything they want to discuss with someone else. Nothing is owed to you for being a member and having access to reading them. Theres no rule that says what is allowed to be posted or not.
you look to have a decent base now just keep on it and clean it up.
and people have decided to be disgusted by the age claim. I dont think the people above were serious about banning kids for age claiming, thats silly. Ima come on newschoolers, ima read threads on newschoolers, ima be a fan boy on newschoolers, and ima hate on newschoolers. DATS LIFE
probably guna loose some points for not having a triple in his run
How ever good you did there will tell how far off you are from others.

I'm 17 an you're slightly better (due to the jumps, I barely do anything but 3s,5s, backflips...)
Improve your style... try not too much to spin to win, you've got some solid tricks, now make them look good!
Especially on rails; try to have a compact solid body position... oh and learn switchups, kfeds... only front and blind 2outs and some casual 4 outs don't get you too far, try learning railing both ways
also maybe spinning both ways...
dunno, I always dreamt of being a pro skier but lol... Kai Mahler is about 3 months younger than me and lives about 2 hours from where I live... and he's pro. I'm not even close to be sponsored lol...
