A dime between my butt cheeks
 
last season being my first ever, I fell in love with boarding, but alas, my form was terrible, way too hunched over, I was tense, and what else.

I want to be better this season!!! much better.

so asking here last winter, someone wise said that I should imagine having a dime between my ass cheeks and that I should try to squeeze it, which would force my hips to be more inline with the rest of the body, and therefore I stay in a more relaxed, upright stance.

all summer I was practicing to get more balanced in my stance, hope it will translate to the slope.

damn dimes. lol.

any other useful tips.

my goal is to shred like this tool. I love how his knees are almost touching the snow on his toe side.

by no means am i an excellent snowboarder but i do not believe imagining anything in your butt to keep your hips in line will do the trick. as long as you have the basic concepts of carving and turning your skills will only increase to the amount at which you put yourself to it.

basically if you tense up that doesnt allow your body to focus on the board and you will only lose more control

The dime thing is to get you to tilt or push your pelvis forward so as to get your pelvis/hips centered over the board's width/waist wise. But also tighten your abs, straighten your back and sink in your knees. Otherwise, beginners tend to ride hunched over and stinky but, i.e., counter balanced with their but hanging over the heel edge, their shoulders hunched over the toe edge and they are bent over at the waist. The dime thing is to get you to align or stack your ankles, hips and shoulders by tighening up your core...especially when in a netural position/stance. Then when you are turning toeside...you hump...its the dime thing. And when you go heel side you dump.

I don't really know anything about this "dime in my ass" training technique. I just wanna say how awesome that avatar is...

I'm really of no help here either. I just wanted to point out that this post reminded me of the "Ass Pennies" skit from the Upright Citizens Bridage.

That skit is awesome sauce

What if you can't afford a dime to put in your ass? Would a penny or nickel work? The nickel is thicker so would allow you to cheat a little more, perhaps reducing the amount of angulation you'd get while still keeping it pinched.

You think them tits on AIRider's avatar could grip a penny? And what would the use of that be?

Thinking of it, there's this porn girl at my gym that has huge fakies. They don't even move when she bounces around doing cardio... crazyness

the only reason i dont carve like the guy in the video is because i would be in the trees off to the right. If only it was steeper, that looked like a pretty flat run :thumbsdown:
