Carving is def something that takes a lot of practice. I ride pretty much only park so I really don't have an edge on my board and I just skid around everywhere. I got my misfit sharpened and ready for some big mountain ripping but found my edges grip so tight my body doesn't really know what's going on. I'm not sure if I really want to spend any time out of the park so I probably won't be learning this stuff anytime soon. But it makes me look at true carving with a new perspective for sure.
