My friend who snowboards is starting to bug the crap out of me with having to have the jump onto rails incredibly small. I can see why people would do it if they wanted to get a quick urban hit in for a movie or onto a steep urban rail but i mean always having inch high jumps onto rails? common. He always says were just being pussy cause pro snowboarders can jump onto rails without like any jumps. And he constantly insists that it is easier for him to spin onto a rail with no jump at all. I mean if you can get onto a rail with no jump thats good for you but the way you get onto the rail isnt part of the trick, except if your spinning or flippin on. Id rather have a jump that makes it wicked easy to get onto the rail so you can do spins on and get more confortable on the rail than to have a small jump and have to work your ass off just to get onto it. I think that the size of the jump makes it easier to get onto the rail, but especailly when people are like well it easier for a skier to get on the rail cause the jump is soo big....well mabey if you though for a minute about it you could also build your jump up to get onto the rail. My friend is completely satisfied with the trick with his manly 'flailing ollie' onto the rail with a half assed boardslide instead of having a smooth slide.
