I quite often struggled with new tricks i wanted to learn on skis and after some time noticed that just some small faults i made were the reason i kept failing doing them.
Therefore i thought it would be helpful to have a thread with a collection of faults people made when learning tricks since i guess that many of us will have had the same issues.
So please post some tricks and your faults wich kept you from getting them down and how you managed to correct them.
Also, if you are having problems with an specific trick feel free to post an request in here
So i guess I'll just start off:
unnatural railslides=> spins off:
When trying to learn 2 pretz 2's and blindswap pretz 2's i had major struggles getting them arround.
After landing the swap or the 2 on I always tried to push my edge in to initiate the 2 out.
I pressed the ski as hard but nothing happened. I always just spun further in the same direction.
After many hours of trying to get them i tried looking over my shoulder more when spinning onto the rail or commiting the swap. I tried to spot my landing point as soon as possible and ended with a way safer stance on the rail.
Then I started looking at the start of the rail once i was standing safe on the rail again. Pushed my edge a bit down and they just started working out perfectly.
Till now I have always been struggling with cork 7's, I just seem to be able to do them on tiny jumps, on bigger jumps I always end up not getting corked, or just a bit. I set them with a very wide stance and kinda like I would on a tramp , just can't seem to get corked.
