Default Come laugh at the idiot trying to hit his first rail

Stupid Snowboarder - YouTube


That idiot would be me.

This is my second season and my first time on the board since March and my first try ever on powderpak or a rail. It ends in a lovely fail. I got a good laugh out of it so maybe you will too.

I was working a fundraising event for my local park and only had a couple free minutes but by the third try I was able to hit my first rail and kinda look like I knew what I was doing.

I was nervous about trying this for the first time on fake snow and in front of so many people. Once I made a jackass out of myself the first time, there was nothing left to worry about and it went smooth. Go fig.

Looks like you guys had a fun setup going though. Any vids of some later hits?

Well the approach looked really sketch so can't really blame you for washing out. Decent snowpack is better for learning on since you're naturally going to check like 3 times as you approach the few times you start hitting a rail. Trying to do that on a carpet setup isn't the easiest things.

I'm sure you'll be dropping hammers by the end of this season.

It was actually a sweet event we put on. We had two runs, one powderpak (Parx - Boarding the Midwest All Day, Everyday.) and the other ice rink snow.

Dunno if you meant better videos of people that actually know wtf their doing or if you meant my dumb ass. haha

Here was my second run; Almost! - YouTube

The third one, which I nailed, is the one that didn't get filmed. I was bummed about that. It's like not getting a baby's first steps on camera.

Then there was this guy;

Yeah, that really got me pumped for the snow to fall. Once I fell I was just pumped to try again instead of being nervous.
