  • Yo, I want to share some tips with you, on how to really really really carve

  • The reason I can do some pretty rad buttering stuff is because I have awesome edge control

  • And that's a direct result from being able to Carve

  • By learning to carve great you'll truly be riding your board to its potential, and it'll make everything you do on your board better

  • Almost every trick on jumps involves carving off of the take-off and in the pipe, it'll help tremendously, too

  • So assuming you're already more skilled than the average nerd on the hill

  • Who's just side slipping down you can already link your turns pretty good then these tips will help?

  • Get you carving better and take you riding to the next level

  • If you've seen snowboarding in Warren Miller films of the 80s and 90s you might think this is how you should carve

  • Riding a bowl or cracking a whip that's dogshit

  • Look, how much fun I'm having

  • Same thing here. I'm swinging my arms and head around to try the turn that's dog shit

  • Right here. I'm keeping my shoulders at my sides with my torso straight up and down like a corpse or zombie that's dog shit

  • So first tip have a silent upper body

  • Do this by twisting the shoulders and torso to face down the hill along with bending the knees and torso a bit.

  • This allows your lower body and board to be quick dynamic and responsive underneath you

  • Practice making quick little turns like this while keeping the upper body silent these aren't carves yet

  • But a little get the upper body ready for them

  • Next with pointing the board straight down the Hill

  • point and Flex your feet

  • To get your board on its sides which will cause the sidecut of the board to do these miniature carves underneath you

  • Again focus on keeping the upper body in position and simply having the board Rock back and forth with letting the board side cut do

  • all the work

  • once you got a good feel for how your side cut responds then gently start to push and maintain pushing against the side cut to

  • Get the board making nice Carves across the Hill

  • You really want to keep driving pressure into the edge of the board and if you're doing it right,

  • You should feel it in your legs

  • Next I want you to try to combine the previous two things by making small

  • mini Carves in the middle of Big carves while cutting across the Hill

  • so it'll be a big toe side carve and

  • Add a quick little flex in it and finish the toe side car heel side carve coming across the Hill

  • Quick Little point back to the Flexing heel side carve toe side carve

  • quick Little Flex and back to the toe side

  • Stay in your comfort zone, but once you feel confident with your carves try them at higher and higher speeds

  • So give these tips a try in that order, and I'm sure you'll be making better turns and carves in no time. Good luck
