Talking 2nd Season Critique

I posted a video here last year, and asked how NOT to be hunched over my board, and how to relax in my stance… I got some great advice, and tips. Thank you everyone. So, I worked on it over the summer, I tried to visualize the proper alignment, I practiced a little on my board with my eyes closed, etc.

END OF SEASON LAST YEAR


START OF SEASON THIS YEAR


So here I am this year, I feel more comfortable on my board, I feel like I have improved quite a bit, my back doesn't hurt anymore after a full day on the slope, but I still feel like I can get better. Much better. I feel my TOE side to HEEL side transfer isn't great, and I tend to skid a lot, whereas the opposite feels quite more fluid.

Anyway, please spend a few mins watching the 2nd vid, and tell me more… I want to get good.

Thank You.

I'm not qualified to critique your riding (though it seems to clearly be improved). The second vid is sweet. Well done, man. I love the song. What is it?

the first song is by "pretty lights", not sure of the song name tho, but I recommend for everyone to go to their website at http://prettylightsmusic.com/ and download all the FREE albums/music, they are amazing. You can thank me later …

you seem more relaxed now, relax more, try some cojones, and it will be much more fun. You can go faster now so you will improve everything. still waiting for snow.

Good job!

Unrelated to the riding, but I loved the part with the bird! Cool moment.

And the end with your gf (?) was amusing.

Thank you SnowWolf, I really appreciate all your help, and the time you take out of your day to write this up. I am conscious of the ruddering, and I am working on initiating the turns with my front foot, but sometimes I get involved with the whole experience that I forget to consciously concentrate on doing it right. It's hard to break a habit, I know when I had to change my shooting form in basketball, it takes hard conscious concentration over and over again to get your brain to change...

The flexion and extension makes sense as well, I like the 1-10 explaination, and will work on it as well. It's no excuse, but I am kinda tall, standing at 6'8 it can get hard for me to get low..

I'll make another video in a few months,

I'm excited. It's fun to see oneself get better, especially on video.
