I snowboarded in high school for about 2 years. I never took a lesson, just learned by myself on the slopes. I went off to college and couldnt afford to snowboard, but this year I bought a new board and have the money to buy some tickets.
Anyway, I know that the way most people turn is by simply leaning one way or the other. I can do this, but over the course of learning by myself I delveloped a habit. When I wanted to turn sharply I would shift a little weight forward and then slide my back foot while leaning into the turn pretty hard. Is this a good practice? I feel like this causes me to drag and edge a little extra and slows me down...
should I fix this habit or is it acceptable?
