He does look little stiff and could use little more flex on his legs, but is it because he is riding on very flat run?
On the video it was hard to tell what kind of run it was. The terrain looks very flat and some part of it looks like transition run. I don't ride transitions runs with flex on my knees (some but barely any). Is this you pushing yourself or are you leisurely riding? You should post something where you are pushing yourself (your weakness would be more noticeable)

|Giannis||CASI Level 2 Standards 2010 - YouTube , where it seems to me that the opposite happens. It looks like their knees are bent while they are on edge and they rise in order to change edge and then bend again to finish the turn and get on the new edge. Is something difference happening which i cant see or this is different type of riding which isnt dynamic? Thanks for your help.|

|SnowMotion||I agree with SnoWolfs analysis. You need to get a little lower at the knees and get over your edge more as you turn. This will couse it to really dig in. A good drill to use to feel what we are talking about is called j-turn washouts. Start by going straight and picking up a little momentum then without using any body rotation lean over your edge until your board turns for you. Keep leaning slowly until you either head back up hill or you slip out and fall lightly uphill. You will instantly feel a difference in your old turning method and this (which is carving).|

|t21||i think your buddy seems to ride a bit sketchy too i guess not much to add from snowolf's advice but i'm self taught myself and his(snowolf's vids and advice) helped me a ton.also having a snowboard instructor as my neighbor is not bad either. The CASI level 1 to 4 video,and Snowprofessor.com is good too|

|bronzzhorse||No harm, no foul!!... I have thick enough skin, but I am also a very "literal" personality... That seems to get me in to trouble on a forum setting...sorry if I came across as an overly sensitive bitch...lol but thanks for the feedback, and Ill work on all those points (if i can get another trip in this year, which at this point isn't looking too likely :-( )|
