Hi, thank you both for the replies. I know it must be difficult to understand my description so I'll try and sort a vid out. It sounds like I'm hop turning though......
Just to add, although my heel turn is stronger, I am linking turns well but only when performing slower open turns.
I want to know how to perform quicker, closed turns. I'm not leaning back, I'm ok at keepin my weight on my front foot. Is the same technique for performing open turns used to execute quick closed turns?? And is the back foot a "brake" only?
My description of an open turn would be:
board at 12 o clock, heel down and turn, board back to 12 o clock, toe down and turn ( again if that makes sense ) I just don't see how you could do that a speed or am I wrong. Maybe I'm turning too much when I do turn perhaps, and I should keep the board facing more down slope?
Thanks in advance, I'm really grateful for the free advise!!!!
