You looked relaxed and not struggling. Especially even so as you named the run a 'cruise' to begin with. Cheers.
ok i corrected the description. No accidents in the video.

Since it was a mellow run i had no option to ride more aggressively but even at that pace, i found myself not being stable on the board enough.
At many times i felt like i was loosing control and was about to catch edge (which i did eventually). The board would wiggle longitudinally. Also by the end of the run, my front calf would burn like hell. I dont have an experienced/keen eye on detail to spot what exactly im doing wrong hence my post.
At this time maybe it would help to describe my stance.
  • I ride regular as seen
  • with a +15/-15 angle
  • and the bindings set as far apart from each as permitted possible by the board inserts
The last point was after a recommendation from a local instructor. I was advised to adopt the "cowboy stance".
