Default What to throw down at a slopestyle comp

I have an upcoming slopestyle competition at a local mountain, and it will be my first comp. It's my first year so I'm not too good, but I can throw down 1's, 3's and a few grabs. I'm average at boxs and rails, (50-50, possible boardslide). There will be 3 30 ft jumps a cannon, and a few boxes and rails.

What is a good judged run that I could ride? I was thinking of a fs 360, backside 180, and method air. As for the rails and boxes, I'm just gonna try to land them clean.

Try to flow through the course and look relaxed. The judges will be pleased if all of your tricks lead into eachother. For example, if your going to land switch, try to hit the next obstacle switch instead of reverting your board.

Tindy, tindy, tindy!

Edit: Get your boardslides down. They're a lot easier than 360s, and 50-50s suck.

Ok, I guess they're fine on difficult rails (and I'm not saying I can do anything better than a 50-50 on a rail), but on boxes they're pretty boring.

I used to compete in skateboarding and initially I made the mistake of trying tricks that I hadn't mastered.

DO WHAT YOU KNOW YOU WILL LAND.

I've seen people win contests for stomping less difficult tricks much better than the more difficult tricks were stomped by 'better riders'.

It doesn't get any simpler than that. Have fun yo!

Best advice is just to not do the comp. You clearly have no chance of winning with those tricks and as a competitor it sucks to wait for riders who should never be there in the first place. I skip quite a few that I know I have no chance winnin, simply to avoid being that asshole.

Well this is the last day of my season so I wanted to have a good time. Anyways theres only about 20 people in the comp anyway. Plus my friends (who im better than) are doing it and I wanna beat them in the comp
It's a really small mountain, which means not many good riders. I've been there all winter and I've seen about 4 boarders who are much better than me, so I feel like im not a nuisance.
