Jed...great stuff. I really liked your progression as i feel some instructors make things too difficult when teaching. i'm curious, why did you choose to go with upper body rotation to initiate the turn rather than starting the turn from the board up by twisting it with the feet?

In Canada we teach using the CASI system, which is top to bottom turning. US instructors use the AASI system, which is bottom to top turning.

Just different ways to achieve a similar goal really.

Thanks for posting the videos. I'm a noob, and have been watching a lot of videos, and they help me feel more confident about my next trip down the slopes.

CASI does not use upper body rotation to make the turn. They have not used upper-body rotation for quite a few years now.

I've heard they've moved to more emphasis on hip/knees/angle rotation since I last did CASI. It's not so much that that've stopped upper body rotation teaching first, but rather refined the teaching to focus more on how lower body rotation affects the turn. There's still nothing wrong with starting the turn with your upper body, and there are still a lot of level 4 CASI instructors that teach using upper body first. Assuming you're familiar with CASI, you'll notice this entire tutorial focuses on the quick ride system of teaching.

Honestly it's not a big deal either way, at the end of the day the goal is to get the student turning with their whole body, with emphasis on their hips knees ankles for dynamic turning and where they start the turn isn't as important as how they execute the rest of the turn, especially as they move to freestyle later where upper body rotation reigns as the main method of rotation.
