Yeah I think if you're compensating for an injury that'll do it! If there's no new snow lets do a day at Nakiska or something.
I was thinking of hitting some more of the groomers of larch next time too, seems like the snow might be better on that side.

|seriouscat||Haha thanks pouts. Maybe when you come back let's go bomb the silver or larch. Always looking for improvements, especially in pow. This year I just felt something is off from the start, maybe its the knee problem (going to see PT on Friday.) But the leg burn between back and front legs have been way too uneven for my liking.|

I've seen you bomb I wouldn't worry about your technique TOO much! We'll head out one day and spend runs just working on certain turn types if you want...
Guy rides down a chunky 45 deg pitch no problem then posts a vid riding a 10 deg pitch and asks for advice. JEEZ! lol

Nah. It's a fish 160. Plenty long for my current weight of 178. I started to suspect the posture problem when the pov cam always had images that tilt.
Plus on a steep turn I always have to drive the knees really hard to make the weight stack over the board.

|sclogger||Paused at 1:02 when you got sideways and real close to the camera. Maybe it's just the perspective, but that board seems awfully short for you. Looks like a swallow tail but I'm just wondering what your effective edge is vs. your weight. Might be what is contributing to your current posture.|

that may not have been the terrain for it, but when things are deep and steep enough i like the bouncing bomb to turn and control speed moreso than any edging
just from what you showed i would say stand up taller and get some bounce in your turns. don't just react and go along for the ride, attack and destroy that shit

|ksup3erb||It's just relative to whatever kinds of turns you're making.|

Nope not at all. This is cat boarding in fwa( bowling alley)
Good call on the bent upper body. I feel like that is a problem as well. As for dynamic riding, take a look at the first two secs of the video. I am not concerned with it in this clip. I am much more active if there's actual bumps/speed or on harder surfaces.
When I am cruising especially in deep pow or a cat track. (Except squaring low for those flat spots) I tend to not move much at all unless necessary. Maybe wrong thing to do?

^ This covered a lot of good points. The main thing I saw was as stated above, you're very rigid, stuck in that hunched over body position and your legs are not moving, just staying in that bent position. Loosen up and let yourself get dynamic, get down as you're entering a turn and straighten up/push off the edge a bit as you exit a turn (unweighting). No sense in me going into that, I'm not good at explainging it and there a crap load of tutorials and vids on dynamic riding out there already. My guess is your lower back hurts after riding?
Looks like a fun run though, was this at Castle???
