Default trick help

I have been snowboarding for about a year and a half now i can do 18o's 360's boxes and some rails i want to learn how to do a 540 and a kinked rail this year are they hard? tips would be helpful. i would also like to learn some different tricks i you have any that would be helpful too.

How do pro snowboarder do a 50 foot jump and land on the rails the make it seem easy but how hard is it really?

Thank you

umm...for the 5's its just going to take practice man. if you can throw a 360 pretty easily and if you can ride switch then its just going to take practice getting the rotation down.

the main thing about kinks is sucking your legs up towards your body or away from in order to compensate for the kink in the rail. its all about balance. it sounds like to me if you can ride a flat rail now then you just need to get to where you feel comfortable enough to try the kink. its not as tough as you're making it out to be...dont mean to sound cliche but practice makes perfect.

and the pros amaze me as well. i think its about 80% confidance after you've reached their skill level.
