Thanks a lot guys, really happy with all the helpful advice. I know some of these things will improve a lot as I get into boarding condition, especially bending at the hip. Here is a shot of me last Feb in mid season which is more my usual stance.
I know I do bend at the hip sometimes especially on challenging terrain and I will be working on that as well as the other points.
Keeping my arms calmer is something I really want to work on, again this comes out more on challenging terrain.
I will definitely take some lessons and will do some research into that today.
This trip puts me at 55 days on a snowboard, not that much so I think I can still change my form quite easily.
This unweighting concept is something I am just starting to understand (mentally).
I learned the basics from a friend and have never had a lesson.
This year I bought a season pass for this mountain and I hope to get many more days on the snow.
I really do appreciate the advice and think this is one of the best parts of our forum
Its a shame some of the threads turn into ego battles
because I think most people on here just want some useful advice and help.
Still I realize its pointless to tell people to be more respectful to others.
I will definitely post up more vids here as the season goes on and I look forward to more advice and help.
If any of you have the means get over here for a trip.
