If your using the wrong technique and keep trying, your just going to make it much more difficult then it actually is. Start with just that: technique. Be aware of what you are doing and how it effects your other movements. Start small and work your way up.

Start off with a nice ride-on feature and work on your form/technique. Your going to have to muster up the courage to get a bit of speed (going slow will make it a lot harder).

If I'm having difficulties with some features I will walk away briefly and do the things I'm good at to boost my confidence before returning. Try to not make a big deal of it, but at the same time be mentally prepared and in the zone.
