few things i noticed

When you get on the box, your bending too far at your hips and your knees are stiff. B end your knees more and straiten out your back. Also, your trying to spot the end of the box by looking under your arm. Try twisting more at the waist and looking over your shoulder to spot the end of the box. This will do 2 things. Itll straiten your upper body more, and it will also help fully rotate your board. Right now your not getting the board all the way around for the slide and i think its due to the way your trying to spot the end of the box. also, i noticed that you took a quick glance uphill while you were sliding. I dont know why you did that, but you shouldnt do it again. itll do nothing but throw off your balance.

Thanks for the input!!!
I am doing some snowboarding tomorrow so will definitely try to make it the right way! For some reason i dont bend my knee everytime i go on a box or a rail. I guess still building the muscle or the stance memory.

And good luck with the learning! I'm at about the same point as you -- in fact we have a flat boxy thing just like that at Seymour right now (at least we did last weekend -- the Seymour park crew are like over-caffeinated squirrels sometimes), and I've been trying to do shifties on it.

So is that actually called a box? Some of the stuff in the parks just defies description sometimes.

For the uninformed like myself... When calling things instead of learning what they actually are... (the features) say the exact description... i.e. Fat box, skinny box, fucked up box, etc., etc.

Hey Haho!
That looks pretty good mate!
It's about as good as I could FS boardslide and 50/50 my first time in the park on Friday. I've only been snowboarding all of 4 times, so unfortunately I'm not really in any position to give advice, but lets keep at it and see how sweet we can get our FS's over the next few seasons!

Keep at it, good advice already mentioned.

Aren't the real large boxes like that called butter box or beginner box??

Practice the form of FS boardslide better. It needs to be your legs go one way and your torso goes the other. Realy tweek your body into that position. Your general riding also needs to get alot better. Alot of the time you were on the snow you had your weight shifted back and your front leg stiff. You want your weight even or forward a bit and both legs flexed and relaxed.

Basically I suppose I am not very comfortable of my back going first and that's why I do not fully tweak my torso.
As for my general riding I think I have this stance from bombing down the mountain a lot and I get faster when my weight is shifted on my back leg! I really should consider how I ride in the terrain park.

So your saying use counter rotation so that you can rotate back off and ride away...correct??
