Default Learn how to Carve on a snowboard

Carving refers to turning your snowboard using only the edge shape of your board

See the full tutorial at: Learn Intermediate Riding and Carving Skills on a snowboard | Snowboard Addiction

When carving you keep a lot of speed through your turns and there isn't much snow flying out from under your board. It's like slicing the snow with a sharp knife. It's used for bombing runs with high-speed clean turns, however it's also essential in freestyle to set up for jumps and riding pipe.

In this video we cover:
- How to balance your weight over the edge of your snowboard
