need some critique on my riding (vid)
 
took a lot of convincing for my buddy to pull out his camera and shoot this green run. Need some advice on my body position, I think I'm bending over too far on my heel side? The carving is sort of exagerated since there was not much slope.

idk...it seems that the squatting heel side is going to be dependent on how fasting ur going and how tight/hard you want to rail the heelside turn. Idk it looks ok to me but not an instructor

your doing fine. Wrath mentioned your squatting is dependent on how hard you want to carve heelside. I turn heelside similar to yours but i keep my head up on easier runs, then if i want to get down and dig harder on heelside carve i just push my hip forward and point my front knee out then squat lower and its on:laugh: Bravo for using your edges on both sides of your turns :thumbsup:

Wish I could board as well as you! Nice job.

not bad however you are bending at your hip as a result you are squatting more than it needs to make the board turn at the same rate as when you are toe edge.
bending at your hip makes your upper body weight shift towards the center of the board so you are squatting more back to compensate.

thanks that helps. I was trying to carve the same way I would at higher speeds to get it on video. I find I really bend at the waist lots cause I will get chatter on my heelside turns, and I get pretty tired bending at the knees after awhile.

Keeping your head up tend to push your chest out a bit so you are not countering your balance when you squat lower. Chatter on your heelside carve can be caused by not enough tilt angle on your board especially when your on a steeper run. Stay centered on your board.

chattering can be the angle of the board is not enough which as you can see in the video when you are on the heel side your board is not very tilted up compare to your toe side. so stop overbending your knees and hip.
