So I got a lesson a couple days ago and one of the biggest thing I was told i need to work on is not riding so tight.
I can tell that I do, I'm just not sure how not too. It's making me struggle on some progression. I want to get more grabs and pokes but I'm so freaking tight I don't ever wanna let go of the handle or shift my position around at all when I'm in the air. So I mostly end up doing just straight big airs both ways.
start snowboarding and skateboarding. get comfortable on the board. get good at slayshes, and fs/bs lipslides on the wake. being confident and comfortable on your board will lead to stylish relaxed riding.
