Default Should I Try a Comp?

Hey all, just trying to get a little advice I guess.

The last couple years I've been pushing myself to progress a fair bit in the park. I mostly stick to the kickers making my rail skills rather lackluster and definitely not competition worthy.

This kind of sucks because most comps nowadays seems to be railjams or slopestyles, but there is still the odd big air comp and I'm wondering if I should put my skills to the test.

The biggest kickers in the park I ride are 35 feet and 45 feet gaps (I notice that 95% of riders are even scared to just straight air these).

I have these tricks dialed: FS 360 Stalefish (or other grabs, I just like stale), FS 540 Stalefish, Cab 360's, Cab 540's
Can sometimes land: FS 720's

The competition I want to enter is the Vans Hi-Standard Series in collaboration with Snowboard Canada, nothing over a 720 is allowed to be thrown and it's all about style. More info here.

Let me know what you think.

If you think you'd have fun, then sure, why not?

Enter man, you've nothing to lose, and it will give you something to gauge what your current level is at.

Yea, this comp has really been my goal, it's in 2 weeks and I'm hoping I can add a little more style to the tricks I got and maybe get the cab 7 dialed down before then.

I'll let you know how it goes!
