I just spent a few days in Utah and managed to get a BIT of footage.

The beginning is some (semi)-steep skidded turning and I try to do some scarving later on. I'm really having issues digging into my heel edge (I fall at one point in the video), any tips on how to do this? I know that I need to straighten out and lean back more but I'm having issues getting myself to do it (though I feel like a rockstar on my toe edge ).

Most of the footage is playing at .75x speed, some is .5x



Also, I'm trying to figure out how to go straight forward with this board. On my last board, I would just flatbase and slightly engage either edge, this would allow me to go forward. However, with this board (GNU CC) whenever I try to slightly engage and edge the edge ends up digging in and turning me. Any tips on how to do this? (from what I've read being completely flatbased is a no-no)
