KneeDropwelcome to fun and frustration!!
i think its easiest to get on the box with both heels down, then sink into tele stance or nosepress..and get ALL the way down, like sittin on your heel
go a little slower and focus on flat skis/even weight(between feet)
make sure your boots are canted properly. my informal test for that is when you put your knee down, it should be centered on your ski.
dont worry about equipment, its been done on anything from 3pins to Bishops
let me know if i need to clarify anything, its late..
KneeDropI assume others who tele park have similar reasoning
^^ words from the legend himself (Dylan insert "awwwww" here if you would like)
i grew up skateboarding and began snowboarding once i moved to colorado, so park has always been something i enjoyed. i switched from snowboarding to tele 4 seasons ago because i just got bored of it. after one horribly pain staking season of learning, i was antsy to get back in the park.. especially to see what hitting a rail with two things on your feet (instead of one) would feel like. long story short.. pretty amazing. i think regardless of what you are riding, if you like park.. you like park, and you will always explore. Dylan was the first person i had ever seen footage of riding tele in the park and it inspired me to try as many of the tele press type craps you can.. if you got it, flaunt it.. right?
I'm riding some older hammerheads with stiffy springs, set on 4. i think these will be a bit stiffer than what those BD's get to. i think for popping onto rails and such having a stiffer binding is nice so it keeps your boards from flopping too hard, but there is a line where if you go too stiff then tele presses became an instant way to blast yourself off the feature.
like Dylan said, just focus on keeping your weight centered and the boards flat.. i fell forever trying it on small boxes and it is just now kind of making sense on other things.
keep at it! you'll figure it out!
ruin tele erryday.
