Basic carving is simply cranking the board onto an edge and riding out the carve according to the sidecut.

More advanced carving is where you start to play with fore/aft and influence the shape...

Up here at 2100 its just about on the limit of rain but brown/green is once again white. Not too seen ungrateful but I'd be happy if the sun just came out again for my last week :)

A total angle of 30 degrees is a good starting point for most people. Personally I ride 15/ -15 and find this perfect. But feel free to adjust by a few degrees either way.

I would say you are shaping up to be a capable rider.

To look smoother and more stylish, try not to throw the board around underneath you as much.

When you initiate the turn, let your upper...

before the moguls get too high, i find that carving cuts through the slush better than skidded turns and you get great grip too. But once the bumps get too big, just play around with them; spin off...
