Ima hop turner :( is that bad?
Watched videos, posted in here looking for answers, watched and read some more...
just something not translating through my thick skull
so after reading and watching people, I realized, I hop when I turn. Toe side, a little less. If I crash hard after trying to turn 'properly', I hop even more going to my heelside turns.
I try to slide turn and I catch an edge.
My biggest problem is, when I start my turn Im not facing downhill I think, board still at a 30 deg angle (or less) from pointing down the fall line. I get too flat and catch a back edge. (board goes in one direction, my body desperating hopes the board will make its way around.
I THINK my weigh balance is alot of the issue... dunno.
Is this bad? Will I eventually work my way out of this or am I ingraining this into my brain?
I'm still very new, haven't had a full season under my belt and had to miss a couple weeks because of being sick and for work..
