Hey Jordan,
Don’t be dissappointed! You rode so well! Every comp is about competing against yourself..so you go into the next one, not to beat all the other riders, but to do better than you did last time… So the weeks in between you listen to your coaches and you practice, practice, practice. In a slopestyle comp your points come from air, style, and trick difficulty…so you start by gettin’your style on easy tricks… mastering some straight airs and grabs…then working your 180’s and on and on….get really solid at one trick and then start learning another! You are already well on your way jordan…enjoy the ride!
