Looking at a youtube video, yes, the falling leaf is pretty much what I do when I go snowboarding. I'm a bit more drastic than some of the videos showing a tutorial on it though - I move along until I'm going very fast, than do a sudden hard break and switch stances to keep my balance. I anger a lot of people this way by getting in front of them and then stopping suddenly
I suppose getting a private lesson would be the best thing to do. Since I have that issue, I'm probably harboring a lot of bad habits that need to be erased in order to improve.
With that said, I suppose I should find ways to take better care of my board before I go out again. Would waxing and sharpening the board be easy enough to do on my own?
Thanks a bunch David
