I can ride switch but at maybe 30% the level I can riding normal. Also my own fault though as I tend to ride stiffer directional boards that tend to be traditional camber.

My daughter can link turns all day on non mogul blacks riding goofy and just about any blue riding regular so she is doing well, but I really would love to see her really have close to the same abilities riding either way.

Any suggestions on things she should be doing (tips, drills, etc) to get better at riding switch?

Thanks!!


Its all about taht front knee. Do a few runs and get your daughter to lean on the front knee. when going heelside -> toeside turns, put the knee to lean forward and pass over the front foot toes. when turning toeside -> heelside, rotate the knee outward.

eaiser to show than explain lol hope it helps somewhat.
