Some help, first video
 
Hi guys

A friend was kind enough to film me now that I have started to lose the fear of speed. I find nose side turns come naturally and riding the toe edge is not a problem, but the heel edge is giving me problems. I find my back foot slides out and i cannot hold a constant line on the heel edge after the turn as i do on the toe edge

I keep saying to myself to bend my knees and raise the toes to dig in the edge but i don't know if I am bending them enough.

Please let me know your thoughts on what my next steps to improve my riding should be

Thanks in advance for your help ;)

How tall are you?

IMO you need to bend your knees more you look to rigid or upright. With proper knee bend you will get more on edge and your turns will be more fluid. Also with proper knee bend you will lean more on your turns getting on edge and really powering thru it.

What mtn is this? I fucking hate T-Bars!! I never knew T-Bars existed until I moved to Europe. They are the bane of my existence!! :dizzy:

Thanks a lot

I am 175cm tall

This is in Salen in Sweden. The mountain is called Hundfjallet

We dont get these T-bars in Spain where i usually ride, so i wiped out a few times before i got used to them

How wide is your stance and what's your angle on the rear binding?

shaneshac 03-20-2014 12:30 PM

Its 43 cm from the inside of one binding to the inside of the other

+15 front foot and -12 back foot

With a duck stance, heelside edge hold often suffers usually. Try a -6 and see if it improves. And measure from the center of each binding plate.

I would say bend knees more and be dynamic.
make your upper body more quiet instead of swinging your arms around to make the board turn.
initiate your turns with front foot instead of the rear.
push your shin into the boot when you on toe edge. are you getting any heel lift in your boots cuz they seem very bendy.

Thanks for the feedback

I am not sure what you mean by heel lift. Can you explain where you see the problem?

Thanks

ok maybe not heel lift but your boots are lifting out of the bindings when you on your toe side.

shaneshac 03-20-2014 03:01 PM

How do i remedy that. Strange because when i try to remove my bindings at the end of a run my boot is always lodged it and i need to force it out
