I have an opportunity to shoot at the Superpipe contest at Whistler this weekend. I wanted some advice since I'm very much an amateur just starting to shoot in manual mode. Camera is a Canon digital Rebel XT with 18-70mm lens and a 90-300mm lens f4-5.6.

what should my settings start at?
Which lens should I use?
Are they any particular angles or shots I should be aiming for?
Shoot in manual or automatic focus?

Of course, any other advice would be appreciated.

If you can, go on the halfpipe, on the lip, and take a fisheye for your shots !!

It should look like this!!
