so i can do rails. pretty much all of them. (with the exception of kinked rails, which i am working on) i'm getting real bored with just 90 degree spins on and off. can anyone give me advice on how to get an edge on the rail and spin out?
One of the mistakes I made when trying learn how to set an edge is I thought too much about lifting my foot. When doing a blind 2 out I concentrated too much on lifting my heel and vice versa for front 2's.
Anyway, it's easier to learn these on flatbars than it is on any kind of box. Just push your heel or toe into the edge of the rail and lead the spin with your head. Also don't look down. It's tempting to watch what your feet are doing when you're setting an edge but if you look down when you're spinning off, you won't finish your rotation. For front 2's, just look uphill until you see the rail again.

That's true about the flat bar except you can use a box if you find the rail intimidating. You just have to use the side 20% of the box, imagining that the rest just isn't there. Sounds stupid but i swear it works.
Was trying to get this last weekend but couldnt get it (on a box)..Do you have to actually lift your font of the ski up in order to dig your heel into the rail? I dont get how that would work on a box?

I think my favorite sport in the Olympics is the one in which you make your way through the snow, you stop, you shoot a gun, and then you continue on. In most of the world, it is known as the biathlon, except in New York City, where it is known as winter. ~Michael Ventre, L.A. Daily News
The biggest part is make sure you pop, and look over your shoulder for the spin. I just learn a backside 270 this year and I had my friend stick up some fingers and i had to tell him how many he had up. This helped me get my head around
