Tossed my first triple cork 1620 the other day at breck
I am taking a much more organized approach towards my "how to videos" this year. Starting this Friday, November 13th, I will be uploading a new "how to video" at noon. This will continue all the way through april. These videos will be uploaded to youtube, newschoolers, and my own website, skitutorials.com, I will have all my updates and schedule on my website. This video was created to help anyone ski switch. I noticed a lot of people doing it wrong over the past few years of skiing and I also used to do it wrong. Skiing switch is something that any freestyle skier should learn how to do. The way I teach you will help you gain control going down the hill, it will help you look better while skiing switch, it will help you have more control while skiing down the hill, and it will help you take off jumps and land jumps better. It is important to keep in mind that it will take a lot of time and practice to get to a comfortable level. The tips I give will help get you there faster but it will probably not be a overnight change. This is part 1 to a 3 part series I will be doing. Part 2 will be about how to hit a jump switch and do a switch 180 on skis and part 3 will consist of how to hit a jump switch and how to do a switch 360 on skis.
Last year I wanted to focus on trying to compete more than I have in the past and I was very happy with the results I was able to obtain. I managed to film enough throughout the year to put this edit together. Thanks to everyone who helped me out this year. Locations: urban, mountain creek -NJ, keystone-CO, Mt. Hood-OR, Liberty Snowflex-VA. I feel very thankful and blessed to be able to do the things I do

In this video I go over how to properly 540. I start with explaining the importance of setting the trick properly with a T set just like you would a 360. There is not much of a difference going from a 360 to 540. You literally just have to throw a 360 and then let your body go in a way. Sometimes doing that will help you get past the mental block if you have one. Throwing a 540 on skis is super fun and once you get the rotation down good you can start grabbing in them. I started with mute grabs but there are tons of different grabs you can do. If you wait till 270 to grab and you are balanced you should be able to mix in any grab you like. Good luck!!!
