Sparks On a Rail!?
 
So, the other day i went on this flat rail we have at our local mountain (Labrador in Truxton NY) which is about a foot wide and 20 feet long. it goes flat for about 5 feet then down at an angle for the other 15. The rail is just flat metal with 2 metal pipes along the edges. Apparently, my friend said that i got on the rail a bit crooked, trying to do a 50-50, turned my board a little bit, and for the last 5 feet or so he said there were sparks coming from my snowboard (SWEET!) :D

I want to know, is this possible, has anyone does it, and if it is possible is it by having your metals edges scrape against the metal edges of the rail?:dunno: (Btw is super sticky and you don't gain any speed on the downhill part)

You must not be familiar with the park.
It happens quite a bit when you are not locked into the rail properly. Nothing to worry about.
