Odd Job Posted February 24, 2010 Report Share Posted February 24, 2010 Just to let you guys know. I've read all the info on "tech files" + did a lot of forum searches. I've read that cross-through is used a lot at slalom g's, when I watch youtube videos of it, their cross through looks very weird. It's extended. then only at the moment of transition they suck their legs up and fling their cog over the board (hence cross over + cross under mix) I see pics on the tech files of cross-through, it seems like more of a "push pull" in extreme carving where one leads to the next. How do you ride on ice? I tend to skid out as the g-forces build up really fast. Should I be letting the g forces build up a lot, but stay angulated? I realized I get better edge grip somewhat if I stay low (but then I dont' have room to do a cross-through) I've started this year and have ridden around 52 times. On +30/+15 softboots/board. I can sometimes make it down a run without falling carving hard, most of the time not. Have tried "angulation" ala bomber style without upper body rotation, then with rotation, push pull, EC push pull (only got the toe side fully laid down), proactive (push pull) of my cross unders, or just regular cross unders. blah blah. Been experimenting/riding a lot and would love some advice on carving in the ice coast. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
