how should i have my wieght and legs for rails. I always fall. are they ones that arent ride ones easy to get on or it there a trick??
anywhere around shoulder width apart, weight centred for the most part. if you're not huge into rails yet, i bet you're probably falling back or leaning forward and catching edge... so file edges down a lot and try keeping your weight centred and don't be afraid of catching.
who has ever caught their edges, i havn't. Wider stance means more stable, i keep low, gives nice style too i think

i always catch my edge when i go wide wituh my legs..and iv filed down my edges in the middle ot the point of no return!
i normally try to tell people just learning rails to be 60% on ur front foot and 40% on ur back.
thanks i will try those tommorow and i hope that i wont kill myself. i will let you know how it went also
i have caught my edge a few times... when i first started jibbin anyways... not since then, but when i started i did... just a precaution...
ya i went today and i am pretty sore. i hit some rails(just the flat) and i caught an edge but i hope that with time i can get better at them
ya dude the flat is dangerous, my bro friend broke is collar bone on that rail and some dude hurt himself yesterday trying the same rail.

what rails would you say are safer?? all rails are dangerous
I think he meant the flat at fortune is deadly
* I had just launched myself 50feet in the air Off a boother when both my skiis pop off. So I think to myself What would Jared do?*
oh ya like the side is so deadly cause it is a big gully from ppl landing off to the one side
