I've finally got me new Izor 9.7s and am deciding this season to try and catch up on all the tricks I've never tried. So far I've learned and properly executed the spread eagle, a tail grab, and a 180 in a half-pipe-like situation. The trouble with my skis is that they aren't meant for tricks and are a bit heavy. I was wondering if I could get further instruction on some maneauvers such as 360s and more beginner moves (and mabye even some intermediate tricks). You can also post a link for a good site with clear instructions regarding ski tricks. Now onto the rail part. I've heard that if you don't have a piece of metal integrated within your skis sole rails will completely screw up the bottoms of your skis until they are wrecked beyond use. I've seen the rail device in the bottom of some Elan models, but my Izors have no such device. As you can probably tell I am a little reluctant to ruin my brand new skis which I've payed for (I'm 15). I know how to do rails but I am just wondering if this is safe for me to try, or should I wait till I get, or demo, a pair of skis meant for rails? Thanks for all your help and sorry about the length of my post.
