When I started board 22 or so years ago, I had a typical stance used at the time. Zero degree back foot, plus 25 or so on the front.
Over the years I've tweaked and tweaked to where I now like -9 rear, +12 on the front or so.
Yesterday I tried a full on forward stance: +9 rear, +27 front, leaving the stance width the same. Tried a few runs on medium to steep groomers, with variable terrain thrown in.
WHAT THE HELL MAN!?!
I really gave it a shot, tried many difference techniques, advanced sliders turns, low speed short radius, and high speed GS style carves. There may have been a SLIGHT advantage to the super high speed laid out carves, but it was not a confident feeling.
The biggest thing I took away from it was not being able to bend my legs nearly as much to absorb the variable terrain.
How does Terje do it?!?
