IMO you should try widening your stance, centering it on the board... its not like you're hitting up a bunch of POW out there.
a wider stance gets you into more of an athletic position
Sorry, I was using my kids spare board that is way to small for me. This wasn't my normal riding board. Plus just starting I thought a smaller board would help me get comfortable doing the exercise before moving to my board. Also I was wearing tennis shoes just slapped into the bindings.
Good points though sorry for the confusion
I've been working less on the jibbing/pressing stuff and more on balance. So I just jump on 50/50 then 180 off bs/fs, etc... I've also tried ollieing while on and trying to land it and stay on. I haven't tried to 180 while on and land still on, but that may be a good idea too. I'll try jibbing and pressing after I actually learn to make it down a green...
Oh who am I kidding, I'll be trying to press and nose block the next time I strap in.
I was going to buy superfeet, and the guy at the shop was showing them compared to my stock 32 insoles, couldn't tell the difference. He told me to save my money. I did, was happy.
Now fast forward, got me some Remind Medics about 3 weeks ago and they are awesome, will be riding on them in about 2 weeks. I work on my feet and they have really helped alot, correct my pronation, support underneath, etc.
There is a significant difference in the quality between these insoles and superfeet, but there is not a significant price difference.
Thanks for that link, i was actually gonna start a thread about inserts, i think I'm going to order the remedy insoles. i have flat feet and need all the support i can get.
I choose this as this is pretty close to the actual size of a rail. Trying to make it as realistic as possible so when I do hit the snow the feeling will be similar and the muscle memory and balance would be as close to actual as well.
I'm sure you could easily get a PVC pipe and give it a try.
