|john doe||I was experimenting with this yesterday. My only complaint about my Buck Ferton is the shallow side cut make carving large and long. I pulled my knees in and found I got faster shorter carves.|

I think I saw this in the SnowProfessor video site. Perhaps it was in carving. I forgot. I think the instruction is wrong though. You don't "extend your legs". You bring your knees together. Assuming your boot is hard enough I guess, you should be able to decrease the "on-tilt sidecut-radius" a little bit. I tried it and I don't think it does anything for me. Maybe it's my setup or it's more effective in hard-booting...or "soft boarding".
I know what you mean by the terms though. It should be like "roll"...as in the standard craft terminology.

Apply these tactics to long radius turns on the flats with some momentum. First, tilt the snowboard and balance on it`s edge. Second, bend the snowboard by pressing on the edge as described above. The student`s goal is not speed or tight turns at this stage, focus on skid avoidance.

Difference between Tilting and Bending?
Tilting the board vs Bending the board? From what I understand you should be tilting first, then bending? No idea how they are different...
