Tips on kinked rail D-F-D
i just started really gettin in to freestyle this year i got boxs down fine and flat rails the only kinked rail of done has been Up flat
Any tips on D-F-D?
just come up to it like any other rail youve hit but you might have to change up the angle on your skis and dont go to fast or itll just basically kick you right off a couple of hits and you should have it...
ight ill try that out next week thanks
Get on normally for the down, and when you get to the flat you'll want to take the weight mostly off your front foot, then shift it back for the second down. I fucked around with one today and im no good but thats info i got from people who did switch ups and disasters on it.
i just started park this year as well but i think i can help. first off, when i was first hitting the d-f-d at my mountain i would always come off early. it took me a 2 days or so to stick it. you need to shift your weight back a little, not really that much. your edge won't stick in unless its a really weird rail. it'll just bounce up and redirect itself. but you do have to stay extremely committed. you have to be really centered so the shock or whatever doesn't throw you off. so...angle your ski up a little, shift weight a bit, stay really committed, keep trying. im not amazing at it or anything, but i'm getting better. usually i get to the last kink or do the whole thing. still sometimes i come off right away. so just keep trying.
commit, alot of kids will hop off before the first kid because they are skeptical, i can guarantee one of 3 things will happen, youll
1) got bucked and sent flying forward
2) slide out onto your hip
3) stomp the shit out of the rail
you just gotta commit and and be prepared for anything
i feel confednt cuz ive already nailed a U-F so i think i can handle it
When ever i do dub kinks (dfd) i always try to start on my toes on the down, and then i come down on the next down over the middle of my feet. When i first started i wanted to get all the way on at first, and i would always get bucked. Just think about jumping on less, more to your toes, it will help you get it.
i have a funny story about a down flat down and it just took place today. The park crew made a biger gap between the rail and the kicker and let me say that the downs are very steep on the rail so i figured id need a good bit more speed then last time to clear the gap well i go and i clear the whole first down part and land on the flat and my knees just buckled and my skis came off and i finished the rail on my stomach. And it hurt alot. But i got hope that i may be able to disaster the whole thing and just hit the last down so it may have worked out ok
^^^^^^ what fucking mountain has a down flat down rail with a jump straight onto it. Side approaches son, thats what it do.
