John Doe and others have mentioned this, we just got back from a very short outing today. I watched him ride just on the groomers and boy is he "open". He is almost looking straight down the hill and while bombing blacks....
He hit a few jumps today, they were pretty icy even though the hill itself was in good shape. He did same as usual. Facing straight down hill, straight legs, washing out heelside on the landing.
Positive note, we stepped aside from the lift line and I showed him exactly his body language and explained how his lower body was just catching up to his upper body while he was in the air. Causing him to land on his heelside edge and wash out. He listened a bit but also blamed the jump
I just worry a lot
as if something would happen it would be to him out of my 3 kids. I can totally see it unfold as we are riding, straight legs, open shoulders, as soon as he leaves the jump his board rotates just 30degrees or so and then he slides out.
Saving up for a camp or coach for next year as the season here is fast approaching an end.
Note: it amazes me how fast he can bomb and stay in control with his upper body facing downhill like that....
