Hey guys, I am a fairly new boarder( this will be my 2nd full season), and I just bought a new board (my first was a used off market board). I also got new boots and bindings, the works. Since my aim is to good get this season, I wanted some tips on how to practice before you hit the slopes. I tried getting in gear and practicing carving/leaning/turning shpeil on my carpet, but i Found it to be sort hard to get the edge in with out almost falling. Also, it was really hard to practice ones' and such without the speed. Any suggestions?
