Go go for it and don't think about what could happen. Don't even visualize yourself doing it, just go and do it.
What I find is that if I stand at the top of gnarly line for a long time then I get nervous and start to think about it. Also I don't talk to my friends about the line because I'll end up bringing different things up about what could go wrong and stuff. Have confidence in yourself and know that you can do it.
Other than that just say fuck it and go.
pretty much you gotta be careful with inverts and big jumps, but you can minimize the risk by being smart about it
sure, there are times when you need to just sack up and do it, but then theres also times when you need to back off
if your not feeling it, don't go for it
if your feeling it, go for it
trust your judgement
and work your way up. Like if you can do 5s, then go for the 7 but don't try a cork 10 if you only land 5s because thats how you can get hurt
visualize all the time, watch videos, talk to those who can do the trick, feel the jump, go for it on a nice soft day
and once you land a trick, keep doing it, don't stop. It takes a gazillion times to get the muscle memory for a trick correct. You will forget how to do it the next day. Like lets say you land a 7. Keep doing the 7 every run. Don't go back to 360s or straight airs or work on something else. Keep doing the trick to remember it
and good luck, don't push yourself past your boundaries too much
i progress when i;m near other guys who are way better than me. i love the feeling of landing new things. so i want to do it more often. thinking it over in your head a million times, going slow mo in you head and picturing what the trick is suposed too look like and then ask some one what is the most suprising part about it and prepare yourself for it. think about what its feels like after wards. dont think about the worst, thinnk about ur future and what it will bring to you. practice on tramp, B.C. ramp camp, or just on curbs for rails.
every day, i thnk about what tricks i want to learn. i write them down adn bring the list with me on the hill. on the lift i take it out and look at it and pick a rail or jmp to do it on...for me, i drank red bull and then i just got a feeling to front flip one day. then i was debating, then i just planned it and prevued it, then i got it the 2nd time. the first i got the rotation but my ski fell off then the sec i got it and that was this year on christmas break. Now, i cna frontflip a 60 ft. at Big Boulder.
its all in your head...just think before you do.
