Park progression makes zero sense. There is no sequence to follow as deciding what to learn. The best thing is to watch what others are doing and see what makes sense in your head. If you can't visualize in your head the movements needed you have nearly zero chance of doing them in real life.

I'm sure you just phrased this wrong, because otherwise this makes no sense. You're telling me it doesn't pay off to get used to boxes by doing a ride-on before trying a street-style? Or going 50-50 before trying a boardslide?

At minimum, parks have S, M, L, and XL features. Sounds like a progression to me.

I'm learning park right now, and I know exactly the progression I'd like to follow, if the Seymour park crew would just cooperate.

There is definitely a sequence to park progression. I'm going to assume this was misphrased because otherwise I have to agree with Donutz and say what you just said makes no sense.

Learning certain tricks in certain orders makes it easier to progress because many park tricks are interlinked and can build on the muscle memory of a separate but similar trick that shares the same movements.

I guess what I meant didn't come across. Of coarse all tricks build on your previous tricks and there are tricks that tend to get learned before others. But you don't want try try tricks that you can't see your self doing simply because they are in some list of what you need to learn first. If boardsliding an ollie on rail makes more sense in your head then 50-50ing a ride on (extreme example, I know) then do that. I just want to emphasize the mental aspect of progression more then some words in an AASI handbook.

For me, I'm always watching other rider's tricks, running them through my head, and if I can make sense of it there then I will probably learn that trick.
