that's 'cause you were forgettin' the matching camo bandana in the right rear pocket.

Lots of fashion and jibbin' advice here. I hear they're really into mixing the knar of the park with PMTS.

I'm only thirteen so i havnt advanced greatly into the world of freestyle skiin but i find it difficult to tweak a cork? is there any tips to help me?

Tweak a cork or tweak a grab and spin cork?

Regarding cork spins

Can you spin regular, meaning pencil straight 360's? It is easier to learn the basics of spinning (on axis) and then try to add position (mute grab or whatever) or spin off axis.

Regarding tweaking grabs: Be patient off the lip of the jump, wait to you are in the air and feel balanced before reaching for the grab.

Once you are making the grab consistently, then try pulling a little more to tweak it, careful though, I've seen many of my athletes pull their ski right off.

Hey Sonyskiwer - are you typing with your forehead?

What position is your other arm in, the one that is not making the grab? You need to use that for counter balance s0ny, experiment with the position and find your balance.

Other things that could be screwing with your balance are your shoulders, are you dropping them too much, not enough. What position is your body in right before you take off? Even with corked spins you need to have fwd pressure (shins touching the tongues of your boots) as you ride up the lip itself.

Are you trying to do too much at once? Break the jump down.

Pop or extend off the lip FIRST
SET your spin
Reach for the grab
COUNTERBALANCE with you other arm
TWEAK IT!


sorry man, I don't mean to shout at you ^^

Hope school goes well, chat ya later

Either that or he found Dad's liquor cabinet and tried the absinthe.

The TGR axiom applies here:
