steezkneezAre you skiing or snowboarding? Also, "BOARDSLIDE DUDE!"
rclover106I had these issues, and I still do somewhat, but all you have to do is just suck it up and commit. You will fall, and it will be all right. Get back up, and try it again. Repetition is your friend with rails. Just commit, slide repeat. You will get it eventually.
The.FishYea you will fall harder if you dont commiy as well. Ive never landed a trick going into it without full commitment
J_SYes it is completely normal.
If you fall back- try to bend your knees more and stay low, lean your wait with the rail, whatever you do, DO NOT lean uphill.
If you slip off early: Just commit and start small and work your way up. Most importantly, speed is everything when trying to stay on a rail.
CazeI have no idea what I'm doing, I try to do it all the time, at first I leaned on my back edges.
Second issue I face is not hitting the rail/box in the center and on top of that I got serious commitment issues and I fall off too early.
Are these issues normal for a beginner park skier?
Deforestationyou need to (once you've turned 90) pit more pressure on your front foot (downhill) than the back one. Also, go faster than you think you'll need to. It might sound scary, but it'll be a lot easier.
