Rails really arent that hard if your just doing 5050's. When I first started doing 5050's I would just jump off to the side of the rail if I couldn't stay balanced. However, when I started learning frontside boardslides, I fell hundreds of times until I landed it

The very first time that I tried to hit a rail, I thought that it would be easier to do a board slide. So I go up to it and jump on, and right away I fall right back on the rail and landed on it on my butt. That was not a very good feeling lol. Since then I can now land 50/50's, FS and BS boardslides, and 50/50 180 off of rails and boxes. Today I ate it really hard on a box though and hit my Kidney haha. But yeah boxes and rails are my favorite thing in the park.

We has like a 6 ft. rail thats like 10 inches off the ground.
1st time: tried a 50-50, slid right off, but didn't fall
2nd time: tried a 50-50 again, and ended up doing what i think is a crooked nose slide. My board was diagonally lined up with the rail and only my left foot (Nose) was on the rail. Slid all the way and rode away I kept trying to make it into a nose slide and not crooked until it ended up being a boardslide. Unconventional way to learn but it worked

1st time i did one i landed a 50-50. thought i was cool stuff went for the boardslide and slammed my butt.
well from then i can do tons of tricks. 50-50. BS board FS board 270 on . 270 off (recently )
270 on to regular. FS boardslide to switch. 180 out 180 on. 180 to tail press. nose press. tail press 180 out.

rails are mad fun, they seem sketchier than they actually are

I did my first box the other day and I landed it all 3 times. Go me! I surprised myself. I landed and rode away no problem but I was still a bit off. I hope it all went well for you too.
