I think it's all in my head. Those vids are awesome btw.
I can do all of those things... skidded turns, pivot turns, those carve turns snow wolf shows in the cat track video.
I think I totally psych myself out like I have no faith that I can do it when I have to. It seems like whenever I fall I wipe out really good with zero control or even knowing what happened and whenever I get good speed I think "this would hurt if i fall now". Liquid courage doesn't help either.. one beer and i become a flailing unco-ordinated mess. lol.
