I would have to go with a flat box cannon. It is one of the easiest rails to do tricks on the rail and it also gives you the chance to do an air trick at the end if you have enough speed

up flat boxes are my favorite. you can do so much with em.
i love boosting off the up, clearing the flat with a backside 1, and tapping the end of the rail with my nose before i land.

I'm pro, so I like ride-on's, small jump on flat rails, or the big log kind. I'm more comfortable with boxes in general.

I like flat bar rails.
Like 3 inches wide. I want to try a round rail soon. I wonder how much different it would feel.

My fav feature isn't a rail at all- it's walls.   I am partial to long flat boxes though.

@humblerooster

Going from flat rails to round can be hard if you don't have the right balance. But I think that once you get the balance down for round rails, then they should be as easy or even easier than flat rails. But that is just my opinion.

I'm into rainbow boxes, corrugated pipes and pretty much any boxes. I'm working on rails, just flat rails and down rails. Nothing special, just front boardslides and 50-50's. I need to get a little more ballsy and try more challenging rails

Butter boxes so I can spin on them without worrying about coming off the side.  Rainbow boxes, corrugated pipes since they make noise, low barrel bonk since I like tapping my tail on it, rails as long as they're not really skinny, really high off the ground, or kinked.

I still cannot finish c boxes or anything with a curve in it Confused

Rainbow boxes and D-F-D are my favorites, but I also like to hit flat boxes with speed and a lil' nose press to get more pop off the ollie at the end of the box.

My favorite type or rail would have to be those perfect fallen over trees and logs in the woods.  Make the mountain your park.

Boxes, cause I'm not great at other types of rails. Don't mind fallen trees either. Going to try and work on various types a bit more next season, probably till I hurt myself, then I'll give up on them again...

I like the dance pads to mess around on or try new things
boxes to warm up
and then I end up hitting the round bars or flat bars when I'm feeling in rhythm.

Flat downs with kinks. I wanna get better at your standard stair rails because thats what is everywhere when you are trying to urban jib. But you cant urban jib when you have no snow. crappy midwest 2011-2012 winter
