well, this is odd. you can hit side on urban down rails, yet you cant hit a hop on flat box?....
i dont know what to tell ya
omfg that is the funniest thing ive ever seen plus karma!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
my GOLDEN tip, STEP ON! first just stop on the lip, put one foot on, count 1-2-3 then just hop up. work it into a slow speed step on, once you can go full speed on, make less and less of a step each run untill its just a hop, it took me about 1 year to just hop on to any rail. IT GOES AWAY! every year i laugh at the beggining season footage of rails! beggining i was like YEAH pretz 270! omg i rock at life now its like lip 270 down flat down flat down flat down flat down 360 switch up pretzel 810 out.. yeeeee...
ps I LIKE LONG MESSAGES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sah;kfjhaswqeiortgsdfgtt hopefully this helps!
If you're talking about things that you jump onto straight, I agree completely. I get scared shitless of my tips catching, especially switch. Side jump ons aren't scary at all though
i think that what your trying to say is that your scared of going onto a rail that not a side up but but just an up. if thats right then this might help. go in with more speed and lean back on your tails so your tips dont catch. make sure you pop lots and set your spin.
this. speed is the thing i'm most scared of in the park, but it does help
i had the same problem my friend.
this info was prob. already posted...but ill back it up with my novice experience.
1) the jump is giving you a upward motion and with a bit of pop should put you above the rail.
2) if it is a down rail(how i learned) every second you go foward and higher off the jump...the rail is getting further down.
3) this should eliminate any fear of hooking your skis. another tip...hit a a down BAR, rather then a hand rail. alot of times they wont have anything to hook your skis in. thnk about it...if you spin but dont get high enough your tips will hit the divider that supports the rail.
4) Commit(as with every trick)
5) Stay square with the rail so you dont slide out.
6) look at the end of the railfeet. still something i struggle with.
