noooo.... not so much, pressure on my front foot, yah, like 60% to 40 on the back foot, the boards all on the snow, just lighter on the back so the inputs can be feathered lightly when needed but yah the main focus is on pressing the flat front foot...

i thought you didnt consider totally flat based to be practicable anyway!

j/k i agree its semantics but yah no there is for sure a difference b/w slightly holding an edge, and pressing flat as ya can and letting the terrain and gravity move you, just adjusting to keep the nose pointing strait
