Difference between Tilting and Bending?

Tilting the board vs Bending the board? From what I understand you should be tilting first, then bending? No idea how they are different...

Are you talking about tilting the board on edge versus torsional steering (ie twisting/torquing the board)

Actually, I'm not sure. Here is an excerpt from what i was reading:

Practice moving the snowboard edge to edge by applying pressure to the edge of the snowboard. Tilt the board less than in the first exercise and now focus on trying to bend the snowboard to make it change directions. To do this, assume a low stance posture and then extend the legs to press the edge into the snow. This should bow the the board, increasing it`s camber at this point and decreasing turn radius.

Apply these tactics to long radius turns on the flats with some momentum. First, tilt the snowboard and balance on it`s edge. Second, bend the snowboard by pressing on the edge as described above. The student`s goal is not speed or tight turns at this stage, focus on skid avoidance.

When I read that info I posed it was in regards to carving. Personally I can only do skidded heelside turns as I've only been snowboarding twice. During my next time snowboarding I plan to learn toeside skid turns, which I am confident I will pick up at a relatively quick rate. Once I feel somewhat comfortable there, I plan to jump into attempting some heelside carving.

I think I saw this in the SnowProfessor video site. Perhaps it was in carving. I forgot. I think the instruction is wrong though. You don't "extend your legs". You bring your knees together. Assuming your boot is hard enough I guess, you should be able to decrease the "on-tilt sidecut-radius" a little bit. I tried it and I don't think it does anything for me. Maybe it's my setup or it's more effective in hard-booting...or "soft boarding".

I know what you mean by the terms though. It should be like "roll"...as in the standard craft terminology.

I was experimenting with this yesterday. My only complaint about my Buck Ferton is the shallow side cut make carving large and long. I pulled my knees in and found I got faster shorter carves.
