Also, OldDOg, I really put the work to all the little muscles in my feet when I ride. I find that consistently riding makes a huge difference in my comfort level. These Reminds are SOOO plush tho...I'll report back as soon as I can go WROD'ing.

Yeah, obviously you can't slide but static exercises are good. It gives you a feel for jumping with the board on, teaches you to land slightly on-edge instead of flat so you don't just slide off (I did some pratfalls the first couple of times) and teaches balance. I've done 180s on and off, hopping back and forth from nollie to ollie, stuff like that.

The workout is very much like pliometrics too. Very explosive movements. I got out of breath really quickly at first, but you get better at it.

Agreed, I can decide if I want to make one. Though I have a hard time with the thought of my board on anything but snow.

Yup same here though I've been considering having a co-worker weld up a pretty standard 8-10 ft shotgun rail too. But this thing would be cheaper and easier to move and I'd fix some polycarbonate to the top so it would double as a semi-legit box.

With where I'm at and my schedule I get 20 days on the hill if I'm lucky. So the last couple of years I've used an RC30 (think small skid steer w/ rubber tracks) and pushed all the snow the plow truck pushes off my long ass driveway into a kicker and landing. Then my friends and I pull each other into it with an ATV pretty much whenever. I'd set the rail/box thing next to the jump so we'd have a jib option.

It's basically this, only outside (and a little less graceful in my case).

So far as I can tell it hasn't hurt my base at all. Although my edges are starting to shred the corners off the 4x4.

I don't think it's anything a tune/hot wax won't fix if it does scratch my base a little or dull my edges.

It's also good for learning how to fall. It's easy to see how you can break a wrist or hyper-extend an elbow trying to catch yourself. You just have to make fists and roll with it like you would on the hill I guess. I tweaked my elbow pretty good this morning to re-enforce that lesson...
