How did they not blow their knees out with those stances!

Awesome video though, little bit of our roots ( =

What is it about their stance or riding style that's causing them to put their hands above their shoulders so much?

Some of the riders actually seem to be going a bit knock-kneed to get themselves lower. Reason I'm concerned is because I've noticed when I'm jumping the 20' on Seymour I tend to bring my back arm up over my head. Am I fighting rotation, or am I unbalanced because I'm standing up too tall?

back in these days there were really no snowboarding boots. we wore sorels and destroyed ankles for it. the knock-kneed stance is mostly because with those boots and the shittiest of bindings you had pretty much no ankle support. that and dudes running tiny forward racing stances.

i'm not sure what you are doing donutz but grab your board - it will give you something to do with your hand and help you keep your balance in the air.

you probably are standing too tall if your standing tall in the air at all... you wanna be tucked

Shred, you're probably right. When I took a riding lesson the instructor told me I tended to stand too tall. Probably popping on the lip of the jump and not re-tucking.

If I end up landing on my head, I'll come back and report how much I like soup.

if you make your stance wider it'll force you to bend your knees more and you'll look better on the board too. (no homo)
