Help with tricks/style
 
Hey,
i recently got a friend to film me. It was my first time getting filmed and this is my second year riding. Can you guys give me some tips on how to ride/look better?

First filmed run - YouTube

Grow some balls and get more speed.

You're losing balance too easily, and it would be much easier if you were going faster. And as long as you stay balanced, you won't be flailing your arms like crazy.

Not that I ride park...so take it for fwiw

less flapping da wings, pull your board up...basically get compact and you look alittle weak in the core but idk

What Edge said, perhaps. :dunno:

Besides that, you looked fine to me. You're progressing great for your 2nd season- already ahead of me in the park and this is my 6th season. Then again I've only been doing all-mountain the whole time. Great job!:eusa_clap:

If you're concerned about the way you look, the only thing I could probably recommend would be to wear a brightly colored jacket that looks good with your setup. You look fine though, so I wouldn't worry about it. :thumbsup:

it was really warm yesterday and my jacket was too insulated.

what i see is just beginner riding the park. Naturally you're going to flap, or do the Frankenstein when you're first in the park. As you keep working on it, make conscious effort to keep yourself from flapping. You'll also learn like, where you *need* to put your arms in order to help execute certain tricks (counter-rotations, etc.) and this will keep you from flapping. keep your core tight & engaged. Don't look down, always look at or beyond the end of the feature.

also don't speed check on the ramps or so close to the approach ramp. dialing in the speed will come but deffinately start working on reducing your speed checks and the placement of them.

Keep at it and have fun!!!!

to me it looks like you need to relax a bit more when you ride. bend you knees a little more when you land and try and be less stiff
