What he said. What you're doing fore aft...and I'm using the editorial "we" here...is NOT a static position, it is a movement. Yes, ya ought to pretty much always have some pressure against the tongue of the boot, but it's not the case that you should always be pressing way forward. If you look at a ski, a carved turn is best done by following the curve of the ski from front to back. That is, at initiation, you press the shovel, in the middle of the turn, press the middle, at the end of the turn, press the tail. It actually turns out that you can do all this good stuff by articulating the ankle (providing your boots aren't wound down too tight) and subtly moving the feet forward and back to adjust your fore/aft pressure distribution. Rather than thinking about how much or how little you're pressing against the boot tongue, I think it's a whole more more instructive to think about standing predominately on the ball of your foot at turn initiation, at the front part of the arch in the middle of the turn, and at the back of the arch at turn completion. And maybe it's just me, but it looks like you've got more forward lean in your boots than you need...
