Default When to hit rails?

So I've been snowboarding for about 2-3 years now (although only getting like 10 days at most each season) and I've gotten really comfortable riding blue runs easily. I can carve really smoothly on them and I don't ever really fall anymore and so this year I decided to finally hit the terrifying terrain parks.

I've been 50/50'ing boxes a lot - as suggested by many - and I think I've got the fundamentals down. Looking at the end and really bending my knees on landing. I'm going to start practicing jumping onto the ride on boxes since for whatever reason my park has no hop-on boxes.

So the real question is, when am I ready for the rails/pipes? Every time I see a 12 year old slide down a pipe or rail, I seriously consider saying FUCK IT JUST GIVE IT A SHOT.

When did you guys start hitting rails?
