Default How do I look?

Been out maybe a half dozen times, just starting to carve. Is there anything you can see that I am doing wrong by looking at my videos?

I felt like I was going really fast but now looking back at the videos Im just crawling along...

get lower and more speed. once you get more comfortable you will go twice that fast...easily. then you can really start laying deep carves.

Looks good but kind of a 'lazy' style, if that makes sense. Get down and really lean into your edges. For heel edge pretend like you're sitting down to take a dump but the toilet seat is really gnarly so you don't want to touch it.. For toe edge get as low as you can, try and drag your hand on the snow without bending down through your back (bend your knees and get as low as possible). Power through your edges and snap between heel and toe. It will be tougher on your legs but you will pick up speed and really learn advanced carving techniques.

you are letting the board drive you instead of you driving the board. you are doing a lot of crossover turning instead of crossunder. kinda lazy and stiff.
