Welcome to Snowboardprocamp This is Kevin and I’m a snowboard coach in Whistler, BC Here are some tips to help
you 50/50 a down rail There are a few tricks you want to have mastered before
attempting a down rail: 50/50 s on a down box Box a gap to box and a feature like a
corrugated pipe the first part of this The first part of this trick is popping a clean ollie An Ollie will get you the height to get your board up and onto the rail You want to
have a bit of speed on your approach so that you can land a few feet down the rail. By landing down the
rail you will keep your momentum moving forward and
your board headed straight on the rail you want to keep your knees bent and
your back fairly straight this will keep your weight centered on the rail your
back hand should be over your tail and your head should be looking forward to
the end this will get you to the end of the rail with your board straight and
level to recap you want to pop a clean Ollie
landing a few feet down the rail keep your knees bent and your back straight
to stay balanced look towards the end of the rail with your back hand over your
tail to keep your snowboard straight to complete the trick

  1. @ISeverythingOK My stance is pretty wide. You want it to be wide but comfortable. If your stance is too wide your boots will be angled in your bindings. Just have to play with it and find out what feels right.

  2. @mrgooseslayer13 Make sure you are super solid on down boxes before you try a rail. I'd say your ready to hit it when you're feeling confident.

  3. Do you mean stiff board? A stiff board makes it harder for sure. A softer board will be more forgiving when landing on the rail. Check your snowboard out online and see what kind riding its made for. A rail specific board will make doing rails way easier.

  4. The Evil Twin is a bit stiff and heavy but you can still do rails on it. I would recommend maybe demoing a softer, lighter board and see if you notice a difference.

  5. Every brand of snowboards will have a range of boards from stiff to soft. Demo a few different boards and see what you prefer. I personally like a softer board that still has good pop.

  6. Just practice tons off ollies on an easy slope. Loading up pressure on the tail of your board, popping into the air, getting your board level in the air, and bending your knees for the landing.

  7. @SnowboardProCamp Wow then I was in tribe with you a few weeks ago (Name's Indra) with my brother. In the morning we rode park and then hiked flute it was so fun man since then I learned back side 360° and frontside sorta but low we are in London 🙁 hopefully be in whistler again next year! Thanks again man!

  8. I can do corgated pipes and ride-on rails, but I cannot find any boxes that have big gaps to get onto them. Do I need to know anything else before I try down rails?

  9. its so damn scary to do these street style rails, i did it once on a small one, and im still working on it. i wuss out last second 75% of the time lol. i ate it pretty hard a couple of times thats why

    how does doing corrugated tubes help?

  10. Hellio, i want to buy my first snowboard but i dont know what to choose i like to: off piste/piste/park and i want a board wich i can ride in both directions im 176cm i weight 62Kg also if i use 720 p amd 60fps with my hero3 you think that would. Be enough?

  11. what is it called when you "run" with your snowboard? like at 0:06 please do a tutorial for that or just tell me what it's called

  12. I'm not sure what that's called besides just "running on a snowboard". I'll try to make a video on it.

  13. Been trying to beat pipe, but still no success. My bord always slide to a side. What should I do? (sorry 4 my eng, mgs)

  14. Try landing a little further down the rail to keep your momentum going straight. Good luck man! Let me know how it goes.

  15. Im going there in January next month. Im an intermediate boarder but never done freestyle, what should I start off trying?

  16. Start by doing some ollies, try some really small jumps, maybe a 5050 on an easy box. Practise lots of switch riding too!

  17. I have trouble jumping from the ground parallel to the rail to landing on the rail completely balanced with my feet under me and the board flush to the rial.  I always end up being slightly on edge or off balance and I slip out onto my back.

  18. http://youtu.be/NRGKoU830qI  this is me and my buddies vid, i took everything you said and applied it, thanks man i really enjoy your vids they are very helpful

  19. Right when I get at the rail I choke so I either slightly jump or I don't jump at all and crash into the rail. Any tips

  20. ive already mastered to do a rail where you didnt have to jump on  but is still have problems with rails with jumping on a rail

  21. At my mountain we have a down rail similar to the ones in the vid. Although the take off is very short and the end of the rail is quite a few feet off the ground. Because of this i have a lot of trouble getting enough pop to get on top and over the rail on both 50-50s and back boardslides. Any suggestions?

  22. i can commit to a backside boardslide easily but the 50 50 i can get on i just have to work not sliding out left or right

  23. Hey could you make a beginner rail tricks?! I'm learning rails now and am curious on what i should start out with besides 50/50s

  24. Lmao I remember when I was learning rails I committed to about 3/4 of the rail and didn't expect to get that far and I slipped out and landed right on my gut soooo stay committed 😂
