Re: EC technique / methodical

Hi Thomas I really like your advice about how to keep your weight back: I think it is better to think of it that way, keep weight off the front foot, rather than put weight on the back foot. A busy family life keeps me away from riding very often these days. When I do get to ride it often feels like...

Soft Boot EC stance angles?

Hi Petr Thank you for your video, very cool! What stance angles are you using/riding in this video? What I find very interesting is how your backside laydowns (with soft boots, pretty mellow stance angles and a 27cm wide board) look VERY similar in style and body position to a rider who could be on ...

The Transition

Hi Joe I agree Matti! I would add to this to think about your TRANSITION. A lot of things happen really quickly in the transition, the rotation included, and the better it is executed the easier the rest of the lay-down seems to fall into place. During the transition the following all happen simulta...

Weight Distribution of Feet

Hi Joe Man, you are close to having that backside laydown dialed in :bravo: Short Answer My gut feeling is that you are putting too much weight on your front foot too early in your carve. The other details you are already all over! Peter's brothers advice is also excellent :mrgreen: Long Winded Answ...

Setting Suggestions

Hello I initially found myself putting too much weight on the nose of the board causing the tail to washout, especially on heel side turns. Is this common amongst beginners? I moved my bindings back a touch which has helped. Am I bending at the waist too much? I am curious because it seems most of y...

Bulk Video

Hello I loved watching the raw footage of the many riders! For me it was nice to not have music and to just hear the sounds of the snow as the boards ripped down the hill. The slope was also the star of the movie for me, this raw footage seemed to give a greater understanding of just how wide, very ...

Re: So lonely on the US east coast...

Hey With the angles I'm running now, I think I may be experiencing boot out on my heel edge, but this could also be due to wrong technique. In an ideal, laid out EC, what angle is the board/boots supposed to be at? I may be dropping my boots too low. Great question! I had a similar question that Jac...
