keep doin the easiest rail you can find, until you get it perfect. what you should look for is being perfectly 90 degrees to the rail, and where your boots are on top of it while grinding. i started out thinkin that i have to balance on the balls of my feet, but through repitition that changed, so you will get it right eventually
your probably straddling the rail because your opening up your body. so when you get on the rail your probably turning your chest toward the end of the rail cause your legs to turn aswell. what you need to do is get on the rail but keep your shoulders facing the side of the rail and instead of turning your body to look at the end of the rail its just a simple head turn...
ive never done it and i dont see how people do maybe if the rail is really sticky but i really dont get how people do it so much ive only gotten close once but the rail was only like a foot n a half tall
Like others have said. Commit, pop off the lip, make sure you turn all the way 90, put your skis should width apart, bend your knees a bit and relax. (if you're having trouble getting completely sideways, throw your spin a little more and think of coming off switch.) Make sure you get it dialed on small features before taking it to bigger ones. Technically, rails are easy. You just have to win the battle with you mind to commit. Also, if you hit a feature, do it right. Many people hit boxes and develop bad habits on them because they get lazy. Practice doing it right on boxes so that when you do rails, it will already be in your head.
Also, be sure you have 180s dialed. That will help you get your spin right.
just commit, turn all the way 90 degrees and keep your feet spread. I find it easier to go to fakie on any rail b/c you just keep spinning and don't have to worry about stopping your momentum to go back to regular
