Thumbs up

I first attempted a 50-50 mailbox shaped feature this season n bailed huge, result hematoma still draining s month later. Fact that I board 4 days a week doesn't help. I analyzed my fail. Which was shoulders parallel with feature n keeping my eyes focused on the end of the feature. After that first attempt I wore knee pads which helped get over the injury fear.

This weekend I just stomped my first 50-50 on a kinked rail, I was really surprised lol n amped. Focus on staying low. I think focusing on breathing helps. Inhale before u hit the feature n exhale as u transition on it focusing on the end of it. Take a few runs by it just scoping. I like going through the park once n then goin down a run n keeping it fun. That is what works for me. Good luck!
