you don't have to be engaging in edge when you put pressure on it. You have to have some sort of pressure on an edge or else eventually you will scorpion big time when you least expect it.
If you are going maximum speed completely flat based, you're an idiot.
Im totally in control, whats the issue? I can use an edge at any time if I need to.
You're clearly not understanding the concept. It's not about engaging an edge like carving. You need to put pressure to one side, even if its the slightest bit. You're probably not even aware you're doing this but if you're not then somehow you've figured out how to defy physics.. Or you're just sloppy
