What do you think guys?

Almost in the end of the video I was practicing the creepy basement video tips.


I am trying to fit my position into the "cereal box", but I have a big butt (ladies like it)

And remember that I came here to ask for help to ride straight????

I am almost there... at 57s on the video is the place that 2 times out of 5 I will catch my heel edge (today happened twice), and it always happens when I am not on an edge (on this case normally toes).

The good thing is that I am not hurting myself anymore when falling

You need to straighten your back out and lower your hips.

Here's a quik tip. Get your buddy to take video of you jumping just standing on the ground in plain clothes. then get him to take video of you trying to jump in this position that you spend most of your time riding in. The reason I say this is because it is really hard to jump in anything but a balanced position. I tell people the same thing when they ride too staright legged. You need to remain in a balanced position so that you can react. So when someone tells you that you need to straighten your back, that's what they actually mean. On your board, something you can try is little jumps continually while going down a gradually pitch, not something steep or you'll gain too much speed. Even try it on flat land. Part of the reason you may be bending so much is that you are trying to have toeside balance while being on your heels(if that makes sense). In essence you should only be on your heels when you are heelside turning (just think of how difficult it is to balance walking on your heels as opposed to your toes).
Tell yourself this... ASA... Athletic Stance Always

Hope this helps

Ur riding stinky...rotate/tilt your pelvis and sink in your knees....maybe widen your stance to get there. This will help you to straighten you back and to squat instead of bending at the waist. Squeeze your ass and tighten your abs. Ride like a porn star...but not the one that is bent over

Thanks guys, I need to correct this position, I had no idea that I was riding like that before watching the video.
Besides that, the turns seems ok, just need little improvements and practice.

And at least, no invisible girlfriend

Maybe turn up the forward lean a bit to see if it'll encourage more bendy knees. Sometimes your knees look locked out.

a couple of tips other people didn't point out:

wait for your friend before you go, especially if they're going to film you.

look forward and look less at your board.

engage your edges more. less flat basing.

Thanks Fielding.

My stance today was almost on the widest position, normally I was riding on widest, but today I decided to give a try just one settings shorter and it was good. Angles, +18 and -11 and worked fine, with no problem on balance.

Also guys check 1:58/59 on the video, what do you think about the line on the snow???
