That is exactly what I want to know!!
Maybe I can get similar advices by taking some intermediate class, but it could cost me hundreds $. Thanks so much!

And your hips are abit rotated open with what looks to be a slight duck stance on the rear seems you almost have an alpine carver open hips. I think if you straightened your back and closed the hips you would be less counter-balanced on top and then be able to really snap some cross-under turns. But great job for only being 3 years into it.

edit: perhaps you hips are doing ok...but work those hips and knees and lower body more...get them really working...they could be more dynamic or are going fast enough to really power some carves or snap some cross unders...maybe think about moving fore and aft along the board in your turns. Your upper body is too need quiet but not stiff. Straighten your back and relax your arms by the side
