I'm 6'8, 230 lbs , 172 long board, shoe size 13.
Holy shit! Are you the spawn of Zeus? I bet you stick out in a crowd.

Anyway aside from posting videos keep in mind that relaxed cruise comes with time and comfort. If you're leaning your upper body into your turns, try to focus on keeping your chest centered over your board.

As an aide, you can extend your arms out like wings in line with the nose and tail of your board. Practice runs like this linking your turns the whole way down. You'll get more comfortable using your lower body to initiate and complete your turns and in time get that "relaxed" style you want.

It's a natural progression. You aren't doing anything "wrong" right now. It's just time to progress up to a better turn.

I have a word limit on my cynicism

Your fucken kidding me? I had to fuck around with my gmail account because youtube was being a homo about me having a hotmail account. Then after the umpteenth time of forgetting my password, having verification sent to another account, then finally being able to log in to my gmail accout to link to my youtube, I find, that your video is set to private.

I didnt know that the son of Zeus was such a rager......

Tough I dont have any critique for your riding, I do have some advice.

Dont use your ass like a vagina.

Ok...im not an instructor, so my points will probably not count:

You need to straighten your back, and use your feet more for turning instead of rolling your shoulders to initiate your turns.

Bottom line = get an advanced lesson.

I thought ragers like you skied anyway...

Just watched the vid. Stick up your ass...Yo ass is shitting out dimes and titties is too heavy...counter balanced on top...ass over heel and shoulders over toe edge...and your shoulders are abit open. You are getting there...typical newb posture. Ur basically bending at the waist...so do that tilted vagina thing. Ur on track, at some point in progression, posture is important; for me once I figured out the tilted puss thing my balance and working the turns became much more stable and easier. I would also suggest practicing putting you hands on your hips or hang them by your sides or hold them together either in front of you or in back...this will force you to quiet your upper body and use the lower body to make turns...i.e., torsional twist/big toe little toe/leading knee (all the same thing) for turning/steering.

MOAR knee bend...

before you drop into a line or even get on a chair lift... you know what here... I've got something that will explain this better than myself.. I use this site for teaching help anyways.

Learn to turn a snowboard | SnowProfessor.com

Just watch that...and don't mind the doucher.. will.. I mean he makes good points but man is he irritating.

Edit: You may be that gaper in the video "ape arm man" without the excessive arm swing, because you are using your shoulders subtly whether you realize it or not... watch the damn video though.. it'll put what everyone is saying into context.

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

I think you've got a stick up your ass......

Focus your body position toe side. Bend your knees more (sometimes it helps to think of it like pushing your knee toward your toe) and move your pelvis out toward your toes while your on toeside.

Those two things alone will seriously improve your riding. You'll find quickly that toeside becomes your power turn. Work on that and post another video.
