I´ve started freestyle skiing this february and I went to the park like 40 times til april when my local park closed. Well, at the end of april all I could do was a 360 nose (only on good days) and a 540 safety, but I`ve always had problems reaching the grabs. Frequently I missed them, what let me freak out. The first thing I thougt was that I was too stiff (what was certainly right, I wasn´t even able to tip my toes, there were like 7" missing) nad started stretching like mad. My progress was only little (now there are still 3,5" missing) and I couldn´t get the grabs any better.
Well, What I wanted to ask before I continue torturing me till I get to the glacier at the beginning of september was, if it is necessary to be that agile that I can put my palms on the ground to get all the grabs easily or if getting the grabs is all about technique.
