Yeah sometimes I get too stretched out on toeside. If that happens then you really can’t react to changes in terrain. He’s pushing his hips forward on toeside while staying compact to react to bumps etc. good video.
Was watching this video and it was pretty cool seeing how his steep angle setup can let him get really compressed in his turns.
One thing I don't understand is how you can stick your ass out on your toeside like that and still keep your edge pressure on your toe. It seems that you need to hinge at the hip if you really want to get compressed on your toe and I see so many carvers do this but can someone explain the mechanics here. Is he able to do this because he's riding with an opened stance and can therefore tilt his hips and knees to get his weight over the toe as opposed to pushing his hips forward ?
In really curious. I'm always able to compress and eat bumps on my heelside which lets me carve bumpier terrain, but my toeside has always felt very "standing upright" since there's only so much compression I can achieve through kneebend with my hips forward.
