theabortionatorYou can learn stuff anywhere. The smaller parks generally do not have the jump size or variety. As far as rails it's a toss up. In a big park you're getting massive rail variety and hitting several in a line. For example, you might hit 5 down rails in one run. You might not get in as many laps, but if you learn a trick and then try it on every rail, in about 3 runs you're doing it in your sleep. You're also able to stop and hike features.
A rope tow park has the ability to get up to an obstacle fast like hiking without tiring yourself out. Lots of laps, but less flow and variety. Easy to find people because the park is tiny.
Honestly crowd size is what I would care more about. I've ridden some of the biggest and smallest parks out there. I enjoy both.
Progression really depends on you, and what motivates you.
Swandog7Seasoning a rail
john18061806Italian seasoning is good on a rail, although I kind of dig cajun seasoning a little more. Either way it's a rail and it will probably taste good even without seasoning, just be sure you have a little salt on it.[/QUOTE
I like when its salted more. Makes it very smooth and a gives it a nice kick to it, not to sweet, not to sour.
braidiganI rode Little Switzerland for 2 years in Slinger, WI and progressed really fast and learned a lot of new tricks. Last year i moved to Keystone and rode the park they have that has much more features and larger jumps. The amount of laps I was getting in was greatly decreased and despite having an amazing park at my disposal i wasn't progressing like I would like.
Wondering what the general opinion was
ButtahMastahYou should hike rails. Hiking and hitting one rail helps to keep you focused when you really want to learn a new trick.
