When I duck my stance, say +15,-9, I'm having a hard time carving on my heels. The transition (toe to heel) is not smooth and I slide a bit. I can ride alot better with a fwd stance, like +25-30, +10-15., but my quads get tired after a few hours, and riding switch is... like going backwards on twin tip skis... What can you do to compensate when you try to carve in a duck stance? Am I the only one experiencing this?
Try pointing your knees outwards when you carve, and set your weight more so on your heels. Also, are you doing extentions and compressions when you carve? If you aren't, that might also explain why you're having a hard time carving. I ride with pretty ducked angles, and loooooovvveee carving with it.
Yeah that's right I can carve really deep in the groomers with a fwd stance. You're probably right, I'm trying to make the board turn when I go on my heels instead of using the sidecut! I'll try that this weekend, concentrate on torsinal flex in my transitions and keep my shoulders parallel to the board. Thanks for the tips!
