|tonicusa||I know Nev Lapwood from SA, he is a good dude. Aside from his videos on tricks and park his personal riding style is really on point. Like surfing you want to find people whose technique is good, but whose personal style you relate to. You aren't going to find too many guys with a better riding style to cop than Nev's. And all you have to do is email him and he will send you pointers and have you send him iPhone videos of yourself to critique. It's the quickest way to really improving aside from a local instructor you like.|

Here are those techniques described in a more extreme manner for doing some harder carves! But you can see what the guys were talking bout with the hips, hump & dump!

About 1:30 in starts talking about engaging edges! The hip movements these guys are talking about in this thread are a little more subtle in practice than they sound when written out. (…at least until you really start Mach-ing down the hill anyway!) I'm a visual learner. reading a lot of instruction doesn't help me too much. At least not until I've experienced it some and can better understand the descriptions.
Watch some vids and get a feel for what people are talking about when they say bend the knees & drive your shins into your boots, pushing hips forward.
Highly recommend their beginner, learning to ride tutorials!

A quick question:
If I take a lesson from you, how are you going to improve my riding if I cant hear or understand anything you say?

Oh wow ...I just went back to page 2 and read your advice. Are you even serious? What planet are you on? DId you even read what level the OP is at? You know it all buttholes are all the same. "Look at how much I know....see look what I taught you!" GTFO. Go read the OP...that kid has no idea what language you are speaking. Did you know that you can learn how people learn? Now you do. Go and learn how people learn...and how they literally hear almost none of the words that you say and if they do they dont even understand or grasp them. Go home.

|GrizzlyBeast||Really man? The OP hasnt even developed the odd calf muscles it takes to balance on a toe edge while carving...or the neurological connections that need to be made in order to send signals to those fast twitch muscles in order to balance. He doesnt need to be thinking about where his hips are or how much his knees are bent. GUess what...his body will naturally learn to do those things properly in the most efficient way possible if hes given room to grow....Not some overbearing way too much instruction asshole breathing down his neck telling them what they are doing wrong. Remember this guy is a BEGINNER. The more complicated you make things the more frustrated and fail the person will feel. You dont know what you are talking about. I would imagine you are not much fun at the slopes.|

|MGD81||"counter rotating" isn't the same as riding across the hill on your toe edge out of alignment, FYI.|
