Welll, I had my friend sorta teach me, but he had only been riding a year and told me to do exactly what you just said not to do. To carve I maybe only use my foward foot by literally like lifting my heel up, which causes cramps so I know I'm doing it wrong. The majority of my carving is my back foot by sorta kicking it out using my calf and heel a bit. I try to keep my knees bent but when I start carving I naturally wanna straighten my back. I lean somewhat sideways, none backward or forward, and dont lift my edge up too much because I feel like I'll fall, which I probably won't. I do ask some of the other riders for advice buuuut they're all dicks and just tell me to quit, say I'm trash, ect haha
