So now you go on to insult everyone on the forum as being so mentally weak as to be "indoctrinated" by the "big bad wolf" and unable to have their own educated opinions....classy!
Of course this statement contradicts the first one, so which is it????
We call it like we see it and the proof is in the riding we see from pro riders and the riding we do everyday. Yeah, there are multiple "styles" but this is a sub forum for people to get advice on how to improve their riding and every system out there from AASI, CASI and camps like HCSC, Windells and Snowboard Addiction all agree on the BEST method for solid progression and all agree your harebrained theories are utter crap.
Yeah Travis Rice and Jeremy Jones (who have great riding form and maintain quiet upper bodies except in "oh shit moments" just make big, lazy carves on bunny hills....
Dude...get real, the kid is like 5 Have you taught a kids progression or been trained in the bio mechanics of children and how they differ from adults?
Where did I or anyone ever say, "yeah, that's all in the hips"? Here is another one of your bizarre circular arguments....
What I said was that for a simple 90 degree pivot from a 50/50 to boardslide, a little hip movement is all it takes and only a retard (such as yourself) thinks they need to whip their arms around. Hell, for 180`s, all I need to do is quick scissoring of the legs and I am around just fine with nothing more than a turn of the head. If you are prewinding and whipping your upper body around just to pull off a 180, then your riding is sub par in this area. Watch a pro rider spin a 5 or 7 and you will see that they use the slight carve (lower body movement) to generate the rotation, not flailing their upper body and that is why they make it clean and stylish.....
I have told you over and over and over and over again, that yes, shoulder rotation has a time and a place such as the anticipatory shoulder rotation in the pipe before the leg retraction from the wall to spin. Note also, that you carve up the wall of the pipe using LOWER BODY MOVEMENTS AS WELL
!. Rotation and counter are fine and are used widely in freestyle, but that does not equate to flailing and whipping your arms around to INITIATE
the maneuver without consideration of also using lower body movements.
