psshh, the reverse taco is about the worst i have ever done. that just kills! I want to say thus far it ties with failed 180 on attempts. those also ended with a very hard landing on my ass and back 6 times in a row

both of these were on a rail similar to what you described, a long pipe about 4-5" in diameter

Seymour has gone the other way this year. Usually they spend very little time on the beginner stuff, but this year they put some effort into it. Maybe because they had nothing better to do . But yesterday they were starting to build the Northlands jumps.
Yea i was hoping Cypress got their begginer park open... i've opted out of the M jumps for the same reasons as you... that blue run is always icy and hardpack as hell; and landing from those M jumps you have to be dialed in, not really begginer-friendly conditions.

Crap, after watching this video and hearing the comments about shin injuries, I'm thinking I might have to get full lower body armour to go with the upper body armour I wear now (two smashed shoulders).

BTW, great to see the older dudes like slyder and donutz getting into the park.
Now that I've got my CASI 2 instructor certification, next up is Park Instructor 1 for me - 49 years old and only started riding at 40. Target is to get both Park 1 and 2 certifications before I get too old. (Yah, I don't know what "too old" is to be honest. as long as your enjoying it...)

CassMT somewhat ot but, speed is your friend for everything, not just rails. opens up lines otherwise un-doable, transfers your momentum across the surface instead of down into it on landings. i don't ride park much, but i skate parks alot, try to grind some pool coping too slow? yer fuct

On topic, speed almost always helps but I've also seen it cause freak outs or it changes the trick too for the person to compensate. The other week I kept freaking out coming toward this ollie on down rail. I watched my friend hit it and figured out I had too much speed.
That's pretty heatscore.
