Learn to do short radius turns and it'll really amp up your riding!

Oh I dunno? That looks an awful lot like the "disco" method you mentioned to me in one of my video critique requests last year! LOL!

Put on some disco track on in the bg and watch it again. Looks like he's "boogyoogy -oogying" to me!




To the OP,.. That kind of speed control is also where being able to "rudder with your back foot can come in handy too. May not be the "preferred" proper form, but you can still maintain speed and control while scrubbing some speed whenever necessary. All while still pointing your board generally down the slope!
