jib progression

Hey guys, I just recently picked up jibbing, and I have a couple box specific questions.

What do I try after ive learned 50-50s and boardslides?

also when im trying to do spins on a box do i just turn my hips and look over my shoulders

thanks in advance!

Are you riding on to the box? Eventually you will want to learn how to be able to get onto a "street-style" rail by angling on from the side. When trying to do spins (past 180), lead with your head and shoulder... don't try to turn your hips as you will likely counter-rotate.

Other tricks to think about
- 50-50
- nosepress
- tailpress...
- boardslide ride out switch
- frontside boardslide (I'm assuming you are doing what is typically a "backside boardslide" which is when you toeside edge is facing downhill), a frontside is when your heelside edge is going downhill (you'll lean about lipslides later).

Switch tricks, frontside 270's, 180's to presses. Take it to a bigger rail.

Are you doing just straight boxes or the more complex boxes too.
up-flat, down-flat-down, kink, triangle, whale tale ????

My 1st trip there ever. Me and my 2 boys went there last season, gonna go again this year.

My 1st time riding real boxes. The only one I didn't try was the up-down triangle. That was my 2nd season riding and TOTAL newbie to park. We had a blast and I gained confidence to try more park. Working on better box tricks and rails if we ever get some snow.

Trying to swing a long weekend to GP otherwise it will be a day trip, long day. 3 hour ride up, all day riding, 3 hours home, but OHHHH so worth it.

Do you ride there much??? They seemed to have something for everyone. I stayed off the "double blacks" a few of the blacks I was a bit shaky on but rode them technically and got more comfortable.

You could try a buttered pretzel. Checkout Youtube for instructions. It's a trick I'm working on right now; looks sick coming on/off a rail.

Tell the truth, even if it leads to your death. - For the truth will set you free.

That's pretty good. You can do almost everything I can do - my favorite trick is tailslide-270.



You can also try pretzel (270 out but in the opposite direction of your initial 90).
