You guys are way kinder in the face of willful ignorance than you have any right to be.

I started twitching and shouting this at my monitor about three OP posts in.

Listen to everything Snowolf says. He's an instructor.

I'm 3 years in and I still don't know how to properly carve.

Of course I've barely tried at all yet so that's something I'm looking forward to trying this upcoming season.

now I'm super confused lol. I'm self-taught, but I've always initiated slide turns and carves by having centered weight and twisting with hip+knees? What is that then? O.o
I'm going to try this leaning forward thing next year...

do go on or link to what you think is a nice guide.

O.o I'm not very good at describing with text what I do, after I read what you wrote, I do most of those things, just not leaning forward very much, Or keeping my cool on stuff beyond my ability.... Anyways that's something else retarded. Would be neat to hear what you have to say about those techniques though.

EDIT: Oh, besides the being horrible at describing how I turn, I should just add these: yesterday night after reading your previous posts I imagined turning while just standing up, I seem to what you mentioned... Or maybe that's just placebo effect. Who knows. Also I've been snowboarding (some times on-and-off) since like grade 5-ish. And have gone through probably most of the bad habits beginners pick up since we didn't have money for instructors. I had a rage 164cm in grade 7.... trolololol. (Mom bought as suprise bday present)
