How to Snowboard : How to Carve Toeside on a Snowboard

How to Snowboard : How to Carve Toeside on a Snowboard

In this segment, we’ll be talking a little
bit about your basic J-turns. After you’ve been practicing your Falling Leaf exercises,
you’ll become aware of which foot is going to feel more dominant. That’s going to be
your foot. It’s going to be the one in front, the control foot. Whether you’re goofy or
regular, as long as it feels good to you that’s what’s important. When you initiate your heel
to toeside turn, you’re going to start out on your heels. And, just like Falling Leaf
you’re going to point your board down the hill. But, keep going until you’re completely
straight. Once you’re completely straight, you want to rock your hips from being in the
heelside position to the toeside position. That’s the most important part. Once you’ve
rocked those hips from the back to forward, your board will just react immediately. And,
it will bring you around naturally into your toeside turn. Tada! And, that’s how you make
a turn. So, that’s how you make a basic turn. Just remember, to keep all your weight on
your front foot. That’s where you get all of your power, all of your control out of.
If you keep your weight in the back foot and the back seat, you’re just going to lose control
and do a wheelie the whole way down. All you have to do is to remember to keep your weight
balanced and keep confident.

    The videos are great, but I cant seem to find a playlist? Its just a mess with all the snowboard videos. If you have a playlist with them all can you post a link?

    the instructions are good, but why are you wearing goggles all the time? u dont need them, u're not going down the hill with the speed of 30 km per hour…

  6. Galinsky007 says:

    the essentials of snowboarding and skiing is learning how to slow down and stop
    then after you master those
    u have nothing to worry about
    leaving you free to learn other techniques

  18. Corporal Crayfish says:

    wow. The goggles are bigger than her.

  19. sidwawa says:

    Oh I know that feeling! I'm going to be learning and soon and nervous as hell, but once you have fell a few times then you won't care. Everyone falls at the start, no one is born an expert, we all learn.

  20. Maxxxz12 says:

  78. Justin Bigrs says:

    this is not carving its simply using lateral balance to initiate a turn and use edge angle to slide across the hill, nice try though, it really isin't easy to explan in a minut video how to carve
