No it's not. Having your inside knee outside of your hip is not the same as hip dumping. Hip dumping to me means moving your hip inside. Hip dumping to me is like banking, but then from the hips. Banking with the hips basically. Moving the hips inside, instead of letting your legs move away from the hips. Hip dumping is moving your hips away from your legs, instead of letting your legs move away from your hips... Have I given enough descriptions? Because this is what I would describe as hip dumping. That instructor guy clearly allows his legs to move away from his hips and his hips are not moving away from his legs.
I usually don't but you don't seem to respond to or understand logical or physical reasoning.
Just to give one example, How do you push yourself closer to the ground? Is that the "s###" you want me to try out for myself? or is it the hip dumping?
Many of the topics that you get worked up about have been the topics of many threads before. They usually end the same way, but if you think you have discovered something new or have a unique understanding, well good luck with that.
Well, for future reference, please don't brag. First of all I do not care about your credentials and second of all, unless you have won world cup races, your credentials are not impressive and nor is your skiing.
I guess if I do not understand it according to you, you have to explain it in greater depth to me. Because from my perspective, I do understand what you are saying, I just disagree.
There is a difference in saying early angulation is good and saying that is what you should be doing all the time. But to me it seemed like you were disaproving early edge angle as a whole. I genuinely think being able to create early edge angle is an important skill to have. Above the fall line skiing is what seperates the men from the boys.
Well if you are already capable of skiing with big edge angle, that is not something you have to try, that is something you are already doing, albeit not consciously. There is a Newtonian law that says you are already doing it btw --> Forces always come in pairs. Action, reaction... Furtmermore centrifugal forces and centripetal forces imply that there needs to be pressure perpendicular to where you are going/your body is travelling. When you go left, you need pressure right and vice versa. Of course pressure and weight can go hand in hand too.
Nonetheless, one of the movements occurring in order to create angle is shown in this vid, well kind of... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUs3imi42yw
What is he doing? I'd say he is pushing his leg sideways. Due to counter in the upper body and the movement showed in this vid, you can create amazing edge angle. What would you say the man in this video is doing? This is a movement you most definitely make while skiing and to me this creates a sense of pushing, it may not be pushing directly downwards, but to me it's pushing nonetheless. But how would you describe this? I describe this as pushing yourself down.
Worked up is a pretty big worked. The whole point of me being on this forum is to talk to people who disagree with my view of skiing and to understand why they disagree with me. I could not care less who agrees or disagrees with me. But I would not learn anything from people that agree with every word I say, now would I? I have not discovered anything, nor have I a unique understanding of skiing. I think a lot of what is being discusses also comes down to semantics, but you never know if you stumble across a new piece of information you did not know before.
One way of looking at it is for the hip this low and properly aligned forces, he should be making a harder turn (going faster turning tighter) and have his outside leg lined up to bear the load like the skier on the right will do. My original fix was to do what I do to turn tighter, but clearly the guy on the right is a better skier than I am.
Another way is at the current speed and turn radius, raise the hip.
I don't think I fully understand what you are saying.
I disagree, tipping the feet and hip dumping are two seperate things and can definitely be combined.
