Speeding up progression
So I'm leaving in a few days for my first tracks this year.
Unfortunately, my season is only 10 days straight like every year.
So NS, how can I speed up learning new tricks? I can slide basic rails like tubes pretty confidently, and do shitty pencil 3s. Started trying blind 2s off last year, but never really got close.
As my time is limited, what should I try to learn? Should I just try to polish up what I can do? Or just try new stuff?
And what should I try if I do what to do new stuff?
And any advise on how to progress faster, and safer would be much appreciated. Cheers
"If you think about it, park skiing is like a religion. We go to worship grounds (mountains) or even have our own shrines at home. We worship idols (tom wallz, t hallz, etc). Perform ancient rituals (backflips, shotgun beers, lip blind tru) and wear our religious garm (tall ts and full tilts)"-CHORIZO
Keep working on what you know and learn new tricks to. And to progress faster just keep trying different tricks and don't do the same tricks that come easy over and over.
To polish up your 3's so they don't look like pencils just add grabs. Tails and Japans are easiest for me on 3's.
As far as new tricks go, backflips, frontflips, 1's, 3's, switch 1's, and front/back 270 outs were all pretty easy for me to learn. You could work your way up to 5's and 7's too but I would recommend perfecting 360's and getting comfortable in the air with grabs or else bigger spins are just going to look sloppy. Hope I helped.
Tell yourself to do at least 1 new trick every run
SIP J.P, Sarah, Warnick, C.R., Shane, and all those lost.
Make yourself a list of tricks you could see yourself doing. Then try and learn three of them a day.
Obviously lip blind two should be in there somewhere.

80% of progression is just time spent skiing. I'd recommend figuring out any way possible to get out more and if that doesn't work build a turf setup. If that doesn't work, steroids.
