With that said, there is a difference between learning and free-riding. When you’re learning something new, you might end up looking a bit kooky — which is normal. Don’t be afraid to try something new because you think you’ll look dumb. You won’t learn anything that way. Once you’ve landed your new trick, however, you have a responsibility to add some style to it and make it your own. Austin says: “In my mind, getting creative is what gives a rider his style. Your creativity is what will separate you from everyone else.” Don’t be the guy who does the same tricks every lap and never falls. You’ve got to take some risks if you want to discover your own style. Above all, have fun and don’t take yourself too seriously.
