How to: Catch an Edge

I get about 75-100 days a year on the slopes and consider myself a pretty decent rider, but every now and again I'll get my ego in check. Hit a small lip, a little air, and caught my front edge before a steep section. First good fall of the season. I'm the one to blame...I told my board I would wax her up real nice Saturday night before riding Sunday, but I went to the bars instead. I thought we were having a pretty good time together, but she reminded me who's boss.

In other news, this was my first time with the pole mount and I think it has a ton of potential. Just need to tweak the angles and get used to riding with it.

I appreciate your video and everything. But, the last thing I need instructions on is how to catch an edge.

i was due. it's tough to see in the video, but there is a long mellow section, then a nice roller before a really steep drop. you can really sore off that roller and take it deep down into the steeps. it was my first run with the pole cam so i was taking it pretty easy...definitely paying more attention to the camera than to my riding. lesson learned.

Hahaha...somebody has got to be playing a joke on me. I had 2 strangers on the lift compliment my jacket, another person commented on the video about it, and now you. It just doesn't make sense.

It's an old Burton shell that I got probably 10 years ago. I have at least 6 jackets and rarely wear that one, but after the other day I think that may change. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
