Doesn't feel particularly wrong but I've heard people talk badly of this kind of 'leg ruddering action'

Note, I only do this on these kind of runs, normally I can carve pretty smoothly and transition fairly smoothly.

Thanks guys. Will get a vid if my buddy brings his camera out.
Legit turn shape for steeps and moguls. You're all good.
