Going down rails

Do you guys focus on where you're landing on the rail or at the end of it, on the ground?

Maybe try looking at it a different way.

You don't look at your feet when you do a kickflip, so you wouldn't be looking at where you are going to land on the rail, so much as looking at the rail itself as you roll up to it and then looking beyond it to where you are going to end up.

Also, this is an interesting article that might help some too.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.
