Most kinks in parks you can kinda just relax your legs then you will naturally absorb the kink. Hardest thing for me when learning kinks is keeping my balance on the rail after the first down flat.. staying on the last down is tough. Biggest thing about staying on the rail is your approach, depending on what trick your doing you should be coming at the rail from the side, flat based and about a foot and a half away from the rail. Commit to the rail, if you have experience in the park you will most likely just come off the rail too early and ride away. Just keeping hiking the feature until you get it down.

I assume it's best to learn a kink 50/50 first??? especially since I can't boardslide yet.

board sliding a kinked rail is more than twice as hard as a 50/50

i can board slide and 50-50 a rail with out even thinking, just im naturally used to riding off a rail in like 3sec so a longer rail should be a challenge but fun. thanks.

Umm.. if you can't boardslide yet I would learn to do that before trying anything on a kink.

Why??
I can ride a whale tail and it has changing directions. Smoother than a kink but similar in keeping board perpendicular to the feature.
Any tips on learning a kink are appreciated
