That doesn't sound right to me. I mean unless your on some 160+ cm stiff assed cambered deck. Even then, I would think more speed would give you more inertial "weight" so to speak to flex into the sidecut/edges when turning. I would suspect it is likely more of a technique/skills issue myself.

...but then I'm still pretty new to all this myself, so I'm no expert. Just my first impression of what I would expect. What size and profile type is your board?
