I spent more time in the park than I usually do tonight, and I am having some trouble with the two things in the title. If anyone could maybe help me out from how I describe it I would greatly appreciate it.
(I apologize if I have my backside/frontside backwards. it always confuses me.)
So I approach the jump, come off the lip on my toe edge, make the rotation etc etc.
It all goes well, until I hit the landing. My board makes the 360 degrees of rotation every time.
But, my board hits, and then the rest of my body weight follows shortly after and I land on my ass. I am always in the backseat.
Is there something simple I am missing about how to keep my body weight over the center of the board or is it just take a lot of painful
Again correct me if I am wrong, but I understand a FS slide to be one where my back is facing DOWN the hill.
So my problem with these is that I approach the rail from the left side, go off my toe edge, do the 90 degree rotation on.
But I cannot stop the momentum of me traveling to the right (from when I ollie off my toe edge) and I fall right off the right side of the rail.
Basically, its like I am just tapping the rail and jumping over it instead of sliding on it.
How do I get off the lip without to much right momentum so that I don't slide off the rail? Or is it again, just me needing to practice and it can't be explained.
Thanks in advance if anyone can help me out. Enjoy the foot of snow if your in the NE
I know I will.
