LukeTheWaffleWith me, I started by doing 1s, and straight airs with grabs, then 3s, then 3s and 1s with grabs. With rails I just did some slides and spins out and some surface swaps.
I'm p bad tjo
Pretty good advice IMO. Does OP skateboard, wakeboard, etc? I found the same rotations that are comfortable on my board, feel natural when transitioning to skis. Half cabs were like warm up tricks when I skated and the first time I ever threw a switch back 1 on skis, my body knew the rotation already. Same goes for railslides. Sliding out from leaning back is a very similar feeling.
If you haven’t done any of the aforementioned sports, I would honestly try 3’s before 1’s and don’t lean back when you decide to take things to a box or rail. You’ll shoot right out.
It was also helpful for me to really stay away from the larger parks and features at first. I mean I still don’t really hike lines in the advanced park if we’re being real. That takes a lot of dedication and progression and it sounds like you’re just trying to have fun. Not get corked lol. That being said this is just my experience coming from a mountain that didn’t even have a terrain park until I was a teenager thus made the same transition and had to try and fit in with park rats who start at age 7 and spend all day lapping a single park when there’s a lot of mountain to explore.
My two cents...
