The very best way to learn new stuff is watch and listen to people that can already do it. Most prodigies come up under the wing of a seasoned pro or two, which is why fitting into and embracing park life and etiquette actually is quite important.
Just like you’ll get better at riding powder by trying to keep up with more experienced riders, you’ll rapidly progress to the big boy kickers and rails if you make a few accomplished mates along the way. Having rad friends only increases the fun you’ll have, so don’t be put off by the mean-looking shredder in the facemask. He’s probably only fourteen anyway. Throw away your inhibitions. Get talking to fellow riders and get radder!
