If that's how you want to ride then rock on and enjoy it but do try giving out technique advice here.

|rasmasyean||That's pretty interesting. You must be putting a lot of weight on your front foot. It almost sounds like you're doing a nose-press (front wheelie) during your turns. Because if you are "hopping" a little, I'm sure you would realize that's what you're doing.|

It enables fast edge switching without dwelling too much in the "in between turns state". Othen it's used to stop or deflect your board before you run into something too. Some ppl will even air the tail a little or something like a "hop turn".

Turn Trasitioning with back foot "ruddering"
Hello as you can see I am new to this forum. When i snowboard(goofy)i use my back foot to act like a rudder then use appropriate edge pressure to pull me around the turn. i have been boarding about 10 times this whole season and i want to know if this is the proper technique. Some people say to use your hips to pull your self around to turn i find that physically impossible and end up ruddering.
