When you get comfortable with your turning/skidding/carving techniques, start riding with your hands on your thighs. You can even grip your pants too. It's really sketchy at first, but this forces you to balance without the use of your hands. There are times when you will sway your arms though. That is unavoidable. But practice will make you keep it to an absolute minimum.

Holding onto the pants is a great exercise. It encourages lower body steering and correct stance.

When I started to actually lean forward parallel to the decline, I realized it was a lot easier to turn which helped with not using my arms..

I was scared I was going to plant over my nose until my instructor dude showed me a nosepress turn.. wow, my mind was blown.

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.
