try to land as flat as you can, and start on boxes, and move up to rails, kinked and others

now that i have been skiing the park for a while now i have gotten really good on rails and the park and the big problem i had learning was that i would get on the rail and i would get on my back edge and slide out. you just have to fully comit is the huge thing.

Wow...I just signed up on the site today and I sure could have used some tips on Sunday. I tried a box, landed on the downslope, caught an edge, and landed on my side from a few feet up. Now I have a Dr appointment to see if I broke some ribs. Anyways, I plan on making use of this tool to help in the future.

well i started out on boxes and i just tried to stay flat as best as i could i had to kinda lean forward a littlebit but not to much cus you will stick and fall forward. try it on as flat as boxes as you can or even if you can find one slightly going up hill. but it is easy to do it once you get it
