Did I learn rails the wrong way?
I naturally spin to the left. I also slide rails by turning to the left, with my right foot forward. Is this the opposite of most everybody else? this makes switch ons difficult as I have to turn to the right and 270 would be pretty impossible. does sliding right foot forwaard also make spins off the rail more difficult (spinning to left)? is that darkside or blindside or something? It seems trying to switch to left foot forward would make rail variations easier to learn, is that the case?
S'all Preference negro. Just learn how to spin on/off to the right..... Makes you look cool. Or dont spin, on the rail, off the rail, dont come on backwards, dont come off backwards. Just come on forwards looking as cool as you possibly can, then come off forward and make it look like you barely even had to turn to come off the rail. hen ride away looking as cool as you possibly can. Works for me.
Trying is the first step towards failure
ive got tha same case as u ive lurned to spin and jib both ways so now it doesnt really bother me it just takes time and practice keep workin on it
Or you can learn how do rails left foot forward.

most people do that, its not hard to spin 270 to the right

When not on skis, just jump around and spin unnatural, I do it in my house all the time because touching the floor that doesn't have carpet is actually LAVA! It worked for me and it can work for you too!
you must live in a very special place^ *cough*mental institute*cough*
yea, i let my friends watch sometimes when they get bored. ive rented out some bleachers for them to sit in actually, im thinking of making big foam hands with 'no jaime! not in there!' written on them.
i swear to drunk im not god.

it seems like this stage of life for a lot of people around our age is like when you are playing a video game and you beat the Final Boss, only to find out that was just a decoy Final Boss and the real Final Boss is about 50x harder. and on top of that, you used all your special tricks to beat the Decoy, and you are also low on life. and you have a crappy third party controller.
thats how most people spin and grind naturally. i spin left and grind left foot forward. that screws you up for most things if you want to stay natural. try switch 270s on, it will come quickly because they are easy to spot and quicker ahtn a 270 on to rotate. i find grinding unnatural easier when i spin to it.

I'm pretty sure most people spin left, hence it being called natural. Same with sliding right foot forward, but there are lots of people that slide left forward so...

I Spin right and slide Right foot first (natural for me). But since I turn right, I just had to get used to watch over my right shoulder when Im ridn switch, then switch ups r 'easy'. and 270, since I spin right, I land natural (right foot first). So its no problem for me, althought I always get worried when I watch videos and I see that everybody is spinning left when I spin right, and slide left first when Im right first. On skate Im a strange goofy, I ride with my left on the tail, but I use my right foot (the one that is on the nose) to (I don't know how is it called in english) run with the board...
So I just think that we r strange goofys, thats all, don't try to imitate the pros, just do the things the way that you feel its natural to you... and then learn to do the same both ways hehe
man who cares just do what feels comfortable
When your not sure about something, just HUCK IT!
yeah, i am the same way. it is just like learning a new trick practice spinning opposite 1s and threes, and you will be fine. you should learn to spin opposite anyway

i'm the same but I have learned to slide unnatural so it isn't a problem, as for switch ons, you just need to get used to it, its not so bad just keep working.

help me get an ipod, no i cant make a little link like the others but i can post the adress, http://www.freeiPods.com/?r=11117107
And its not hard to fill out and complete, but i dont have friends
if you slide right foot forward..is it harder to spin 270 off left rather than right?
spinning the 90 degrees for switch on, unnatural and natural dont really matter.
ill be super rich and own mt.hood and let everybody from ns ski for free... except freezed
Yea i spin left also. Kind of difficult to learn rails.

yu guys got it all wrong, its just left side and right side, there is no nautral and unnautral, that just means doing the opposite of what yu normally do, like if yu normally spin to the right, that doesnt mean yur alwayz spinning unnatural. its personal preference.
you should be able to spin 90 and 270 either way, those are tiny rotations. like someone said, stand in you living room or yard or somewhere, and just practice spinning the other way. it just takes practice man, rails are fucking easy.
its all mental tron. if you want to do it, you can. and do what feels confortable.
