If you guys can share with your personal experiences or some tips it would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
In a true carve you won't be gaining any speed control from skidding or pivoting the board. So when you are carving and want to keep your speed at a comfortable level focus on the shape (like a C not a J)and the number of turns (more=slower) you are making.
