Yeah a lot of people start out riding with that almost straight up and down pose... Work on really bending the knees, they're your suspension for handling rougher terrain and if they're fully extended all the time you'll have trouble absorbing bumps.

One thing that may help is increasing the forward lean angle of the bindings highbacks. It can help force you to bend your knees until you're used to doing it naturally.

Otherwise, keep practising! It looks like you're having fun so just keep it up...
