Are you just starting riding this season? First... learn to ride smoothly, learn to ride anything and everything on the mountain, then you can progress to tricks and the park. Start off with ollies, and learning to ride switch. These are two of the main things used in park riding. Become great at switch, switch ollies, and that stuff. On jumps start with small airs, then throw in some grabs. For jibbing start on boxes, and start with simple 50-50s

life IS good.

Learn how to ride the board properly before you start any tricks. I know it sounds boring but a solid base of being able to ride makes learning park moves so so so much easier. Get a few lessons to get good technique and it'll make the world of difference as you progress.

Dont run before you can walk!

you know me, i like the libertarian attitude with enforced responsibility.

it is tuff to say at what rate people should progress or not, coz everyone is different in skills, experience and ambition.

for me, i have been riding for aboot 10 years.... i still haven't done a 360.... other kiddies come along and do them in their first season! but i don't care.... i get my thrills else where. for sure i would like to do a 3 at least once, i love throwing the tweaked out 1's, but i also like working to ensure that my switch is as fast as my regular and that both can be done anywhere on the hill.

someone who like the park over the off piste, might think i am a spastic for being so slow, but this 'sport' is primarily for me, one of self expression. you can't express yourself, by persuing the timeframe objectives as dictated by someone else.

and fear is a good thing too.... it is what gives value to life and accomplishment. to this end, i would sooner try that Valdez descent as done by terje in the other thread, than ever consider landing a clean 540.

but that's just me! you can't fear fire without first getting at least a little scorched!

Like the others said. If this is your first time out you will probably have a hard enough time just getting down the hill. It comes fast after you get going but stick with the basics. Can't start building a house without the foundation. I guess you could but it won't be a great house. And don't rush, a house can still turn out fucked up if the foundation isn't layed right.
