Every time i go to hit a rail i have trouble committing i know i can do it because i can slide boxes really easily but when i go to hit a rail i freak out fight before the rail. Does anybody know how i can over come my fear?
just huck it. if the pop on is good and its not to steep your fine. worst thing that has happened to me is that you fall off the side a few times, another good thing to do is try a flat rail first. all you need to do i jump and make sure the center of your bindings is right over the rail
What helped me a lot was first straddling the rail. So find a rail you can straddle. Then do just as you would if you were grinding a box. Its all mental. Like as you go up to the rail tell yourself that you are going to be able to do it. What also helps me is if I go through what is going to happen and what I'm going to do. Confidence is key. I now find rails more fun and even easier than box's because you sorta lock on to them.
Make sure you're not shaking too much. It sounds weird but it used to happen to me too. Your feet have to be ready to slide the rail steadily, if they're limp they will do everything you don't want them to do. I overcame this by just starting off with an easier rail and just getting more comfortable sliding. And also just think of every rail as the same. Don't let your mind sike you out and make you think something is harder than it really is. I mean the pros throw the fuck down on the craziest shit so we all should be physically able to do crazy things too, right?

the best thing to know about rails is that you just have to commit. trust me, it hurts more to not commit than it does to just do it
Real small rail, one foot on each side, medium speed, pop hard amd spin 180. All there is to it. As long as u commit 100% no doubt you'll get it
