i did it!

i finally did a 360 and hit a kinked rail. on the kinked rail, the first few times i hit it i jumped off before the last kink, but i finally started to stay on and it was so easy and fun! i also did my first 3. i tried it backside and it was so easy. to everybody like me, just go for the 3. backside might seem scarier but its really not and its sooo easy. just keep your head up. DO NOT LOOK DOWN until you finished the rotation. it might sound strange, bu that's what you have to do. for me, looking down psychs you out.

if you feel your kneecap give out, it's probably flying right next to the 40 cal bullet I just sniped you with.

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.

Yeah, rails are a lower priority for me simply because I don't want to damage my baby and going to the truck to switch to the beater board is a PITA.

But the 3. Yeah, someday...

Big problem on Seymour is that because it's so snowboard oriented, the park crew biases all their builds towards intermediate and advanced riders. Even the so-called 'beginner' park doesn't really cater to beginners. This also means no small ramps for learning small jumps, and side hits although numerous get worn down in a hurry.

Anyway, end rant, but I'm having trouble finding a small jump to work with ever since the crew mowed down the little one off Mushroom.

Donutz sounds like my park. Nearly nothing for the beginner or should I say advanced beginner skill set.
This is why I'm forced to learn on some big jumps that I'm still trying to get dialed in on

Yep. You'd think that skipping a few steps would speed you along, but it actually makes you more tentative with the bigger stuff.
