So I've been playing on boxes. I took a park lesson about a month ago at Breck and it went really well. I rode pipe for the first time--which I effing loved and I wish there was a pipe close by--and learned boardslides. Kind of...
I got the concept, but I can't execute. I'm working on frontside, and it's pissing me off.
So, I'm approaching the feature 50-50, I'm getting on the feature 50-50 and then turning the board on the feature. I need to wax my board for sure, but I get a lot of resistance on the feature. I don't know if I'm not lifting my weight enough, but I can't get the board to turn on the box. I really try to shove my back foot out, but when I do I naturally compensate by leaning back and going on edge.
I don't understand how I'm supposed to manage my weight distribution. Same thing with butters. I can press, but I can't turn the board without engaging an edge. I can get it sometimes while I'm on flat, but once I'm moving, it's hopeless. I tense up and I can't make myself light enough to rotate the board under me on the snow.
