Mr.BishopAs silly as it can sound really work the basics. Getting a proper takeoff with a super good pop can do wonders. Work both your front and left slides and spins.
Every big building needs a really solid foundation.
And, summer camp.
Mr.BishopAnd, summer camp.
michael.knapp.10i was thinking about going to momentum next season or windells but windells dosent look all that hot
Swandog7If you poop to early, you can't get on as high rails when urban on, and it can throw you off to a side
.HERODon't poop to early haha
Swandog7Fuck I've done that in probably 3 threads now
S.J.WI know this my seem try hardish??? But hit a gym and build some muscle. Not to the point where you're like super buff bodybuilder. But just enough so you have a solid base. Also do yoga if they offer classes and flexability training. Train your legs heaps and your core heaps. Yeah training legs suck but once you have those thick muscular legs you'll be able to drive your ski and your ski won't feel so heavy. Also cardio is a must. And eat healthy, none of this shit that will just get you tired. Eat protein, carbs and fats and avoid sugars. You'll see not only a drastic increase in your skiing ability but just in life. You'll be hapier, healither and ripped so the birds will love you. Or dudes if you swing that way.
michael.knapp.10So lately I've been trying to work on park . I had a knee operation so i missed out this season a lot but i came back at the end and started doing some park (jumps, boxes ) kind of rails . Ive always been more into mountain like 70% mtn 30% park but now I'm trying to step up my park game a lot this season about 50 and 50 . Is there anything i could start out with in park i like air more so I'm trying to get better at that . Or any tips you could pass on to a beginner to intermediate into park.
Saga.The way I see park (or any really) progression going is there are two paths. You can
A. Start from the bottom and go through every step. Learn to spin every direction starting at 180 and moving on as you become confident with each on various features, learn to slide different styles and difficulty of rails all ways and then build into all the switch ups.
B. Find the tricks and moves that appeal to you and you really enjoy. Master those and set specific goals, work towards them.
Process A can take longer to get to a higher level of riding but will assure that there are no holes in your riding as well as make you a much more well rounded skier. This will also allow you to take your park tricks to non park spaces. Process B. will have a more instantly gratifying feeling. You will be able to do some of the more difficult moves but you will be limited in the long run.
mantoastSo true, this was my first year of park as well and I had learned a ton of the basics then started to neglect my right ski slides and right spins. Now I still can hit rails right foot but it looks ugly compared to my left. Learning things both ways is crucial! I mean hell I cant spin right to save my life. I can almost blind 4 right foot forward but can't even blind 2 left foot forward. Saga nailed it
brotoi have been doing yoga for a couple weeks now and i can already tell it is going to help me sooo much when ski season rolls around. it's like a one stop shop to help your balance, leg strength, core strength, focus, and flexibility. you could easily see how each of those things would drastically improve your skiing. seriously, it seems kinda weird at first, but i look forward to doing it now, even if it's a really intense workout
