I think if one were to combine the top Koreans and the top Canadians you'd have an impressive system/skier.

 

Worked with one of the Austrian team this winter, he could really ski however he wanted, really one of the best skiers I know, the Austrian upper body style is pretty stiff though.

To each their own.  Whatever keeps you safe and having fun! cool.gif

 
I think the idea behind it is that it's actually way less work than angulating, but I agree it does look a little strange.

Found a video presentation from Interski 2011 explaining Japan's new concept, "Hybrid Skiing." Great explanation if you can get past the broken english and somewhat long presentation. Please take a look, if interested.
