What is a good progression of tricks to learn?
So far I've got a 180, 360, 540, backflip, and a blind two off. What tricks should I learn next and are there any like places that explain the trick so I dont fuck myself up. I have no wish to go back to the ER.
single, double, triple, multiple
For rails, front 2, check out Jake Mullers video on it. Also learn lip on so you can lip on blind tru. I would try and learn a flat spin for jumps.
ollie, shove it, pop shove it, frontside 180, backside 180, varial flip, tre flip
Try to get front,back,and surface swaps. Then from there you can learn K Feds, Britneys, etc.
Also try some 4s out.
For jumps, you should try spinning switch, and getting a ton of grabs. Maybe Flatspins if your feeling it.
learn good sw 5's. not straight sw5 or sw rodeo(fuck sw rodeo), but a good casual slightly corked sw 5. easiest to learn with would be with tail or japan, but if you can do them proper without grab you will skip like 5 levels.
I feel that this is the key to everything. If you can do a proper sw5 you can easily do cork 7 and 9. and if you got proper sw 5's and regular 9's, then you have the golden key to sw9's wich is the most OG "hard trick" you can do. but then we're talking like level 12. start with sw5.
sw5 is the start to a good life.
when it comes to rails, just to A LOT of 270 on. start with low plastic pipes, level up.
take all those tricks and work on them like spinning unatural or switch or both then intagrate a ton of diffrent grabs tweaks and shiftys and style to them once thats down learn cork 3 and flat 3 both good starting inverted flips to learn.
Probably front flips, corks, rodeos, and mistys

Honestly though, No one really progresses the same way as one another. There isn't really a line of progression that every skier follows and the pros are the ones that have made it to the end of the line. Just do the next trick that you would be most comfortable trying or the trick that you want to try the most.
