Ill be riding cable for the second third and fourth times this weekend. I got comfortable with the pull of the cable and had a fine time on rails crossing over from snowboarding. I was exhausted by the time I felt comfortable enough to hit a kicker so i decided not to push it.
This time I'm planning on taking full advantage of the cable, I consider myself an intermediate with many spins and an invert.
I have 2 questions:
What technique is there to hitting a kicker? Build up speed, flat base, pop and spin? Is spinning easier to do TS or HS?
On longer rails I found myself coming off 10 feet or so early, does this have more to do with approach and speed or handle placement? I think I need more slack
