Help me stop pressuring my back foot!
An off shoot of the "Pressuring The Front To Start A Turn" thread...
I've been very conscious of late that my snowboarding technique is, well, shit. I mean, I can board most slopes and go a decent speed and my edge control if fairly good. But my actually style is poor and it leads to (a) a sore back leg and (b) problems progressing.
My first problem is that my boots are too big but I'm addressing that with new boots I'm currently breaking in. But I've also noticed that my weight isn't centred and my pressure is on my back foot (which is odd as I'm right footed and a goofy rider). My front leg isn't as bent either.
Any tips on how to address this? I'm not a beginner (60+ days last year, maybe another 60 over the previous 5) so I've already become "comfortable" with these bad habits so I'm really look for how I can address it rather than learn it. While riding if I note it I try and force myself to even the weight out but it feels unnatural and I lose some control. I also revert to the normal as soon as I am no longer conscious of it. And I flat out can't seem to get the two legs bent evenly. Standing still, fine, but as soon as I'm heading down hill...
I am thinking of getting a private lesson but I thought I'd see what the good folks of SBF thought first!
