Default

you look much more relaxed...good,
your upper body is quieter...good,
you are not opening up shoulders...good
you are using your lower body more....good

improvements
bend your knees a bit more,...really drive your front knee going toeside and sit more for heelside
use your front knee and foot to steer (shift your hips toward the nose abit more when starting the turn and then drive the front knee for toeside or squat more for heelside...but shift your hips toward the nose)....your are using your back leg to rudder turns
let your rear leg/knee follow your front leg/knee....no need to push your back foot around.
practice trying to make tighter/more dynamic turns...
perhaps by taking a couple of runs down a black or double black and then go back to the blue/green and be more aggressive in your turning...not necessarily in speed but really making the board cut or rail turns.


UR doing great
