Default What's next??

I wanted to get your advice on what I can do next.

I can carve goofy with no problems. I can carve switch as long as I'm not going too fast. But this will come with practice. I was wondering what the next step will be. Meaning, what would be the next natural progression?

Thanks!

There is no definite answer to this. Once you have basics down, progression is totally your decision. Some people head straight to jibbing once they get decent with their edges. Others head to jumps. Some go powder hunting. Others go tree sniffing.

I'll give you some ideas on stuff to play around with though

Tail presses. They are fun.

Ollies/Nollies

Butters

Small jumps. You can start on rollers for this.

If you want to jib, go ride some wide boxes or table tops.

The next natural progression IMO is whatever you find fun. Just go ride and try it all. That alone will progress you.

Less is key for me. When I do presses, instead of doing a lot of them in short frequencies, I do less of them for longer frequencies. Balance will be tricky, but holding out a long press down the mountain is fun. I also use balance more than I do strength. I'll manually lift the nose higher to get over some bumps, but that's about it. I also like to add my own flare and grab the tail during one.

Ollies are the same. It gets pretty tiring if you are ollieing all day. Just find some fun things to hop over here and there.
