My thoughts

I am going to second what Weipim said. I am a big fan of the rocker (or banana) between your feet, and normal camber under foot. To me it feels like all the advantages of other camber profiles with...

Retraction

When we first learn to turn we do what we call up-unweighting or most extended at edge change. This means we ride across the hill in a flexed stance and extend (or get taller) to unweight the engaged...

Agree with Snowolf

Snowolf is right on. Ride it factory, not just to put yourself in the best position for flexing the board. Also it puts us centered on the sidecut which is very necessary for turning smoothly and...

Skid vs Carve

When we want to skid a turn, we twist the board torsionally, think of grabbing the tip and tail and twisting opposite like wringing out a towel. Now do this with your feet, pull up on your left toes...

I agree with poutanen completely, from how to test it to why... I would just like to add two things... One jump off a bench or table, or the bottom stair, how do you land? In a good stance for you...

Try this

Obviously this is an issue with the board (as long as your not lying about your abilities on your t-rice). However, this board just needs different inputs on the approach and takeoff to give you...

Your welcome

As it sounds like you are going to be riding with these guys for a while, this might help you develop safer more effective plans for them in the future, and if they could learn it themselves even...
