Default rocker washout???

Ok so im new here and moving to Denver, CO i bought my first set up a T. Rice limited edition C2BTX Magne-traction with Gnu Mutants W/fast tech and burton ruler boots. I'm going to start Tricks this year but I'm a bit worried because i've heard so much about washout with the rocker is it going to affect me with the C2BTX? the rocker camber combo? also whats a good trick to learn first? i know start small then progress to bigger kickers. any advice or tips? i can butter all day. also i was riding a Skate banana and doing straight line speed i was "washing out?" i would spin left and right sometimes ending up backwards. so I' m regular stance 6'2" riding a 161.5 wide. i steer with the back of the board pushing and pulling as i call it. like i said any tip and advice would be awesome thanks!

No. No. 1080s. Go Faster. You are turning the board wrong.

First things to do in the park are straight airs and 50/50s. Don't use your back foot to steer the board, skidded turns should by initiated with the front foot.

You learned wrong and have developed a very bad habit. You're "ruddering".

i don't think thats entirely true. I find "ruddering" great when in tight tree's to maintain speed.

When in tight trees sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do, but if you're primarily turning with your rear foot, you're doing it wrong.

Ruddering scrubs speed, so do proper skidded turns. Difference is that ruddering looks like crap and you have less control.

This is where I would normally go into a whole thing... But it's all been said. Get on your front foot. When it comes time to go threw some tight trees you should have the knowhow of what and when to do something or another to come out the other side. As far as learning some tricks... I would try a manual maybe a butter but mainly you should be working on your turns until you can cruise edge to edge just by shifting your weight toe to heel and heel to toe. Gl and keep shredding!
