Here's something that has been on my mind for a while, and I'd like hear your take on it:
Say that you are initiating the turn by tipping your soles then going all the way up through knees to the hips. If you pressure the edges early, there's not much doubt what's happening because you can feel the pressure during the increasing angles.
Now say that you delay the edge set by holding back ever so slightly on leg extension. If you perform the same movements, there won't be any pressure pushing back at you through the soles, now if you keep delaying you will probably catch the turn with the hip quite low and the forces coming like a rush from below the feet.
My question is, what's the difference between this and hip dumping, if both alternatives starts at the same position in transition and recieves the forces through the feet at the same time. I'm talking about roughly the first half of the upper c, in some rare cases to the apex.
I *guess* hip dumping is not very well defined, and now I'm talking about a delayed hip dumping if such a thing exists. If you think there's a miles wide difference between the two alternatives, I much like to hear how you define hip dumping instead of answering the question (because the question isn't valid in that case).
I guess I should add I'm only referring to arc-to-arc carving.
(If i'm using the wrong terms in your mind, please tell me what I should change in the question to make it readable instead of flaming.)
