|Plurr||Gotchaaaa, this honestly helps so much!! Another thing is my body is to stay perpendicular to my board at all time, correct? and my knees are to always be bent slightly but when I'm carving do I bend more?..|

|Plurr||Alright so I watched all the videos and I can't wait to try these tips out when my local resort opens. They helped on how I should be leaning and bending my knees but I'm having a hard time understanding lifting my toes or heel, pressing down, ect with which foot to initiate certain turns. Also, I somewhat understand differences between turns but when to use which I dunno.|

That's the thread I was talkin' bout!!! Lots of good info. Still, as SW & others have already said,.. Nothing is as good as face to face time with a good instructor!
My first few months, I had lots of little "issues" with my riding that I couldn't have even identified let alone corrected all on my own. You really need someone competent who can give you instant feedback on the "bad habits" that could b tripping you up!
The biggest benefit being, with an instructor once you experience in real time, the difference between how it feels to ride with proper form & with your bad habits corrected, that feedback is doubly reinforced and it will start to become "good habit"!
Thanks SW for posting that thread link!

I remember watching a bunch of them, but I can't recall if they were all posted in one thread or not! If not, maybe go over 2 YT & search Snowolf? LOTs of good tips & technique!!

|Plurr||Welll, I had my friend sorta teach me, but he had only been riding a year and told me to do exactly what you just said not to do. To carve I maybe only use my foward foot by literally like lifting my heel up, which causes cramps so I know I'm doing it wrong. The majority of my carving is my back foot by sorta kicking it out using my calf and heel a bit. I try to keep my knees bent but when I start carving I naturally wanna straighten my back. I lean somewhat sideways, none backward or forward, and dont lift my edge up too much because I feel like I'll fall, which I probably won't. I do ask some of the other riders for advice buuuut they're all dicks and just tell me to quit, say I'm trash, ect haha|
