Q. What is the best way to go about learning to ride rails?

I would like to learn some technique tricks or pointers on how to hit any of  
the grind rails or FunBox. Thanks, John

Jamie Answers:

Always stop before the rail with enough space to be able to point the board straight at the rail with out making any turns. this is important so that you don't turn just before the rail and in turning you don't hit the rail going straight. Second, keep your line of sight on the end of the rail! where you look is where you go!

Lauren Traub Teton answers:

Be sure to read "Rail Riding 101" by a guy who competes on rails, John Callahan.

Gavin Ehringer  answers:

Start small, then go big. Use small bumps to launch off. Ideally, they should have a slope to land on, as landing on flat land is difficult and can hurt. If you have a "blind" landing, have someone spot for you. As you approach the jump, lower your body by flexing the knees and look fixedly at the takeoff point. Spring up, but don't throw your arms up. They will upset your balance and make you look like a leapin' Bozo. In the air, try and pull the board closer to your body by bringing the knees to the chest. Spot your landing, remembering to keep those knees bent to absorb the impact. Hoot and holler if you make it. Walk up the hill and do it again.
