you could always shop his face onto the guy in the video.. that would make for epic funnies.

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

ok so I went tonight, conditions were okey... hard packed powder ... no ice, but still hard if you fall ...

Most of the time my hands were in my pockets, also with my back hand I was grabbing my left ass cheek, so that my shoulders stay parallel with the board.. then tilerally telling myself press/lift to initiate turns, plus trying to remember to bend knees more ....

I think it worked, as I didn't hunch too much, I don't think, and my back wasn't sore after 3hrs of riding ... I still have lots to work on, but I think that was much better ...

on a side note, I tried the dime trick, and pelvis, it was hard to do, i felt off balance, and felt weird bending my knees at that position... i gotta work on it ..

Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.

you might just have to start riding steeper slopes. I used to look really stiff like in your video, but once i started doing the harder stuff, then it started to become more natural to relax.

on a side note, what would happen if you were doing the dime trick and you fell on your ass real hard? yowza.
