Easy tricks for groomers

I want to start a bit of park soon. What are some easy tricks that are doable on side hits of groomers? What tricks/techniques should i know before entering the park?

Just go through the park and roll off the sides of the obstacles until you want to commit to something. There's no minimum criteria for going through the park.

I'll blast through your park throwing my steezy straight air indy grabs while flipping the bird screaming fuck the free world.

Learn to ride switch and practice all four 180s. In addition, don't cut across the landings of jumps and jibs or sit in the way after falling, unless you're actually hurt and incapable of moving.

This. It's actually a good idea to learn this stuff first and then hit the park. I mean you can go straight to the park as long as you respect other riders and don't cut in front of other people hitting obstacles. There are way too many (mostly young) riders who don't give a fuck about other people trying to ride in the park. And you can easily learn the basics in the groomers, after that you'll be more confident to ride in the park

Look at Jed's beginner ground trick videos at snomie.com. Well worth signing up for those well-made videos.

Argh! Requires you to submit an email address even to watch a sample. Jed, I get that it's a business and all, but for me that's an instant walk-away moment.

Donutz, I'm usually the same way but if you have an email for this kind of stuff, I'll say the videos are well-enough produced that's it's worth signing up IMO.

Ban Jed!

Donutz, it's 2013. You don't have a spam email address yet? I have one email just for signing up for shit. Separate from my financial account email address, etc. etc.
