This is great advice! That was a huge thing for me, riding lazy when learning switch caused me a lot of pain. I forgot how much slamming on cat tracks hurt. I feel like its almost worse than knuckling a small jump. learning switch on a mellow blue or a steeper green opposed to a gentle slope is key.
