Default The true essence of freestyling

How much technique do you really have to have to do freestyling? You have to actually look at it, It's a real skill to be able to freestyle ski. Do you have to take certain classes or learn certain things to be able to have body control?

Good luck freestyling man. The easiest way to start is to buy XXL clothing. Tht way is you don't land it, it still looks good.

i reccomend that you try doing flippy spinny things into pools and on trampolines before you try it at you local hill.

im also going to add to the post above me. for each additional X your clothing is, you get twice the steeze. lets say kid A is wearing XL geat and kid B has XXXL. kid A lands a smooth cork 9 and Kid B only does a 360. regardless, kid b is 4 times better because of his clothing

Exactly. Each X = steezier. So XXL = Steezy steezy guy. XXXL= steezy steezy steezy guy


If you manage to get a XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXL jacket & XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXL pant, you'll be so steezy. It'll make your 180 look like a rodeo misty kangaroo DJ nose tail double mute lui kang daffy 1260 combined grab

I think a lot of skiing has to do with courage, conditioning, and commitment. You can't do much without those.

I haven't braved freestyling. I have the courage but not the conditioning, which I know is dangerous to me and others

Flexibility is something that you have to have as well. Because not being limber will not allow you to do anything dealing with freestyling what so ever.
