Airing out..

So the other week I learned to air the other way (usually I air spinning to the left, but now I do them to the right)

I do little baby airs but whatever haha, anyway.. It felt more natural to air out spinning to the left, it's also feeling more natural spinning to the right doing them, just coming back in feels sketchy. I also feel like I can go higher. I spin to the right naturally as I'm goofy footed, so maybe that's why.

is anyone else like this? like their switch airs feel better/higher or is it just me? haha I think I'm gonna make my "switch" airs my regular now though.

Also, I landed a downside whip tonight I'm happy with. so here's a bonus for reading this thread

I cant air in a consistent fashion. This is because i dont go to parks nearly as much as i need to. haha

I can understand this though. When you ride goofy and then go normal it makes sense it would be easier. haha

maybe haha. I always thought I aired to the left for the past few years but could barely make it above coping until a few weeks ago when my friend taught me an easy way. the thought "hey, I spin to the right. maybe airing that way would be easier?" crossed my mind, but I never actually tried it until just the other week.

Yeah haha it always depresses me everytime i go to air something at a park and just cant. haha Everyone says it is so easy and not to overthink it. I always overthink it. The only place i feel kinda comfortable trying it is wheeling skatepark on the pool coping and southpark on the one part haha One of these days haha

Yeah, a perfect example is Tom Dugan. Just look at him! Airs in both directions are blowing high and his "switch" airs are even higher! I am goofy-footed and yes, "switch" airing is much easier but I can't get much pop at the moment. Regular airs are easier and can pop but I can't control it as well. Just think of goofy riding as doing frontside tricks on a board. Cuase like regular riding people in BMX, when you do something that requires you to scoop your bike, your back foot will kick inward, but being goofy-footed, only your front foot can do that.

Just give it a try haha it's honestly not that bad. going higher is scarier though. just work your way up.

I've been learning how to air recently haha. Used to do nothing but grind but now I love flowing around. Just getting above the coping but I love it now and hopefully I get better soon.

I spin goofy normally, but I air both ways. I just go whichever way I'm heading haha.
