Mmm no you don't. I learned to do 360s without crashing once.

Okay so thats a couple hours out of your kiting career, what about the rest?



Fact that you called them 360s is a bit of a concern

I thought your point was "if you're not crashing, then you aren't progressing". I've actually done a few things that are on actual progression charts on the first attempt, now I think of it. But usually it involved some crashing, sure. I don't see how crashing defines progression though.

What else would you call them?

I would call zero crashes for years zero progression for years.

I have to agree with the supposition that if you don't crash you're not learning hard enough - you don't learn until you commit enough in your head that- sure a crash may happen - then focus on the move, you get better at the flow of it all and land it like a boss.
Every now and then, Mother Nature Just Spanks Your Ass - can be an awsome ride for a while though. It is the nature of evolution, that you get better at using the edge the higher you fly. Another rule of the universe is for every action, there can be an equal and opposite reaction. over the edge is out most times
you are balancing unseen forces and the elements enjoy the ride

Crashing is a biproduct of learning. You learn from your successful attempts and less from your screw ups.

Thats my academic suppositive 2 cents.
