Its my first year in park and today i stomped a 3. I just wanted to share this because i had some questions. I did on the end of the pipe where people usually do first backflips. took me about an hour but i finally got around. What should i do it on next before i do it on big jumps? Like off to the side of a barrel jib?
most areas have a progression-style park with smaller jumps perfect for learning/ practicing 3's. If yours doesn't, there are probably numerous small dips on the sides of trails that can be useful for practicing on. only use the side of take-offs of other features if you have to; the landings are specifically designed to be hit one way.
but congrats on your first 3, keep practicing

SKI THE EAST
For me, skiing is about finding that perfect moment when you can't think of anything else that you would rather be doing or anyone else that you would rather be doing it with.
honestly its WAY easier on something in the 5-10 foot range than anywhere else I can stomp them on big boys and sometimes i can stomp them on really little stuff but by far my favorite is around 10 feet.
congrats! i learned them off like 20 foot jumps cause i was having trouble with the commitment off little rollers and stuff, and 20 was the smallest actual jump that day. the few times i fell didn't actually hurt and now i feel better about the thought of turning my back while going faster and bigger.
everything would be better if everyone wasnt a complete pussy.
yeah dude, it's hard to progress when mountains don't have progression parks. Most mountains i go to don't have any features to work your way up on, so kid's always get hurt trying to do shit they're not ready for.
/hate on NH park designers.
