ha! i dunno! i did better at biology than at money matters!

the 2 nuggets of advice that i have found to be the absolute best:

1. positive visualisation - picture yourself from the start of the run in, thru the perfect jump, the smoothest landing and the biggest cheer from your buds

2. relax; shake out everything, from your face, thru your limbs down to your boots! chant 'loosey goosey' to yerself and swing yer limbs like a loose limbed chimp!

and then flllllyyyyyyyy!

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

Yeah. I'm pretty good at carving now, I'm not sure if I am too smooth but I don't skid atleast not alot when doing it, altough I'm not the best at maintaining a high angle to initate sharper turns. Anyway to me it seems that I'm doing sharper turns when using your method, digging in the nose part of the edge first, than when carving when I dig both edges at the same time.

and i noticed that even when carving it's smoother to put the front part of the edge first and then the back part quickly follows, to make it smooth transition. Not just lean forward-lean back.
