Hello, i went skiing in 3 locations this year ( Dachstein in Austria, Bansko in Bulgaria, Kopaonik in Serbia )
I've been skiing since i was 4, but never had a professional training, and until 3 years ago i didn't pay attention to minute details that really matter, i had the boots too large, didn't focus on pressuring the tips that much...and after finding this forum i have improved a lot, i can feel that when i ski.
Now i use a very tight Dobermann 150 boot and Volkl Racetiger GS race stock ski, >23m radius, and just bought a pair of fischer RC4 SG for juniors, >33m radius, just out of curiosity for a larger radius, and if i will get the hang of them, i will buy a true GS ski sometime in the future
The thing is i like speed and i feel confident on my powers, and have been filming myself with an extension on the helmet, and i want some heartless reviews :))
I think i should work more on knee angulation and try to have a lower stance, but overall the skis "listen" to everything i tell them to do, i can hold an edge on any slope condition i've skied on so far, but i just want more.
I have narrow feet and calves and i stand a bit upright comparing with others, but i don't think forward lean matters as much as other aspects, because modern skis are made to be driven centered.
Some would say that the boot is too much, but i'm blending with it very well because i have narrow heels, and anything higher than 27 mondo makes a loose fit for me....to solve the fore aft balance i bought a booster strap for next season, because the standard velcro doesn't deliver any progressiveness in motion
so here are a couple of videos below, feel free to write me an oppinion, thanks a lot, it would mean much to me :)
