When you were close to the camera, you weren't carving. Looked like you dug in and got a nice toe side carve after you passed the cam. Work on angulation. Hump and Dump. Really bend those knees and thrust your pelvis forward on toe side. Toward the end of the toe side carve start to load the tail and then quickly pull your legs up and get into dump position (like you're dropping one). Try not to lean your torso forward toward your toes while on the heelside carve. It won't matter so much on the terrain you were riding but on steeper stuff you'll get chatter and you're edge will break free. You want your spine stacked opposing the G-Force. As far the loading the tail part. Image the board is a dollar bill and you're feeding it into a machine. You start our the carve with your weight forward and slowly feed the board forward till your weight is back, then quickly move it forward again while changing edges and repeat. You want to get your edge as high possible as quickly as possible. Both feet at the same time. (Often with a forward stance you'll actually be initiating from the rear foot. I ride +30 +15).
Was that Jay Peak?
