For the youtube vid, just place the code after the "=" in between the youtube tags, and it'll do this:



For your riding, what do you think you're doing wrong? What makes you think you're doing anything wrong? Hard to tell from the video but it seemed like you were leaning back a bit much...

It feels like i can get deeper into turns when I lean back a little more

If that's the case, I'd take an intermediate/advanced lesson. Looks like you can ride quite confidently, but leaning back on a groomer with no fresh snow will hold you back. You've got to really ride the front of the board hard to start a turn...

Try slowing down a bit and really work on carving. Seems like your technique isn't bad, so slow down and perfect it!

Next time have someone else film you. It's very difficult to deduce anything useful from this other than that you own orange pants.

doesnt seem to be too much of a bad habit. what makes you think you are doing it wrong? some people say you leaning too far back, to me its just lens distortion in the beginning.
maybe perhaps you are skidding more than you carving at that speed.

Standing still. We can get a lot more information from 2 or 3 10 second clips of you riding past than 10 minutes of shaky chase cam.

if you want to see whether you are leaning back, one technique I used is to do a turn (or whatever part of your riding you think you are leaning back in), then as you are turning freeze your body in place and let the board turn you into a heel/toe traverse. This will slow you down enough for you to look down at your body and see if your shoulders/hips are balanced, or if you've shifted your weight over the back foot.

also putting weight on your front foot is supposed to make turn initiation easier. in fact when I find myself leaning back on steep runs that's what I tell myself in order to fix it (that if i want to slow down and turn faster I have to put more weight over the front).
