ok you say you're comfortable with 50-50 next try a boardslide bro... you already turned the board a little on the last 'dance floor' box. so just progress from there.

backside boardslide the first

50-50 then boardslide the second (looks like it goes up/down or up/flat)

last one try do a 180 and land in 50-50. if you dont spin enough it will get you used to the boardslide and you'll be more confident on the first boxes. if you land it it will give you practice riding out switch. from there you can progress to boardslide 180 off etc etc. good luck!

on that up/down box I like the idea of a shiftie into boardslide. Cuz if your board does come out from under you more than likely your going down on your bum and not catching a toe edge. Little less painful.

Practice the boardslides on the dance floor. If you can hop into the DF right into a boardslide that would greatly build that muscle memory for when you want to hop/olly right into a BS on a box or after a transition on a box.

Also on the DF (dance floor box) ever think of a 50/50 then shifty a 180 into switch 50/50 hope I used the right terms.

Have you considered popping a 180 off and landing switch from any of these. They look perfect with low consequences for that ?

Some simple tail or nose presses for style points?

Those look like some boxes I wish our park had !! Mostly rails by me.
Good luck and keep the videos coming. Do you have a buddy that can do a vid instead of a 1st pov? will help you see your form better and get advice from others.
