This video is alot better imo, although I disagree with your choice of stills. There is a decent amount of LTE tipping here on your left footers, right footers not so much plus there is over-rotation on that side. I think its pretty clear that there is a persistent alignment issue on the right footers (this does not necessarily translate to skis, carvers are much higher off the surface thus alignment can be slightly different). Keep in mind, that the cuff could also be the culprit here, it's not always the sole canting and usually the optimal configuration is a combination of the two.

its a bit better, but you know what...after looking at it some more, I think it could also be footbed related. Seems like your right ankle just violently everts to the inside edge and of course the knee is going to follow. Its a bit unreasonable to have custom footbeds just for carvers, so one thing you can do is try to hold back that eversion by hanging on the LTE a little longer. Smoothly transition that right ankle from inversion to eversion...don't let it drop like an on/off switch. Analog control over your ankle tipping will pay huge dividends in your skiing.

Coincidentally, this is something I began thinking about a few days ago after my initial experiences with my new slackline, especially while just balancing on a single foot. That thing is hyper sensitive to all movement and I soon realized my ankle balance skills are not so great! I think the slackline could be a game changer.


I also got one of those a few weeks ago. I found it extremely challenging the first time around, but the improvement's been pretty rapid. After doing it ~2x a week for 5-6 weeks I'm starting to think I might outgrow the 15 meter line I got soon...

Right footers look alot better, tipping progressive. I would focus on the transition at this point, it looks a bit jerky and delayed at times...after that pick up the pace.

I do like your technique.
Unfortunately I’m not qualified to give you any advice, but just curious how you get back up the hill? Do you have friend that drives you up or are you just super fit and skate up?
