hey well it depends on wht kind of trick you are looking to do. wht tricks did u you have in mind?? if your trying to advance and learn 720s or spins you can practice on a tramp and then just go for it in the park . If your looking to get better at rails you can always make a bake yard set up out of pvc pipes and work on switch ups or spining on or off
just try it and fall until i you get it
its kind of frustrating at times but its that much better when you finally get to that day when you can stomp it over and over again no problem
1 you need to understand how the trick as to be done , the details to make it
2 you practice it as much as you need
i usely think about it all season then try it the following season
You should spend a lot of time imagining yourself doing whatever trick you want to do. This is what I do when I'm bored in class, and it definitly pays off. Whatever trick you want to do you should imagine it as if you are doing it, in first person, not like your watching someone else do it. Try to picture a time when you were at your mountain-how everything looked, how you felt. Then revoke the images of you doing the precursor trick. For example, if you want to learn 5's, just remember a time when you landed a good 3. Imagine riding up to the jump, and setting your spin, perfectly flat, without clipping the snow or being too jerky. Slow down the imagination video thing goign on in your head. Imagine what you did with your arms, legs, skis, etc. One of the most important things to visualize is what you are going to see as you do the trick. Sometimes this can be very hard, especially if its the first time doing a trick - like a backflip or your first 360. Imagine going off that jump, setting your spin, and seeing the woods, then the rest of the trail, and then the woods again as you come around, and then the landing. Everything you imagine about your trick should be perfect. DON"T THINK ABOUT MESSING UP.
okay well it depends on what trick you want to learn, with any trick start on the tramp.
if you want to learn corks or something there are progressions for just about any inverted or off axis spin (when going off axis i would recomend knowing how to do solid backflips on a tramp first)
then if you have acess to a water ramp they are very very very healpfull to learn some basic spins and since you cant carve the lip you have to do them perfect every time.
and last take it to snow, start with some smaller jumps with soft landings, if your trick is landing switch i wouldnt recomend landing in pow, but if it is its way less painfull to fall in pow.
also remember to not jump into your big trick right awya, stratch and start with smaller spins first .
hope that helps
