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

Greatly appreciated actually! I am thinking this may not be a bad idea for the off season next year. Will have to pick up a POS board for it though. Thx for sharing!

Nice!

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.

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.

Anyone tried this with pipe instead of a flat board?

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.
