Each turn has a smooth, consistent radius with your speed being controlled throughout the turn. Your knees should be be bent with your hips pushed forward and a straight upright back. Your whole body should be making each turn together in unison with your upper body and lower body aligned through your turns and your hips located centrally between your feet. It should look and feel effortless. The reality is, many bad habits can creep into your riding. Nearly all rider encounter the same problems with snowboard technique.

    To be fair, the "correct" turns highlighted in your video had significantly slower transitions and more travel distance as compared to the "incorrect" turns. This begs the question: Are these actually incorrect turns as you have labelled them or different types of turns for different scenarios? For example, you wouldn't want to be using the "correct" turns in this video to handle black diamond moguls? Please let me know your opinion on this subject!

    I see you are turning wide s turns, how can you still ride correctly but decreasing the turns size so you are more in a straight line down the mountain?
