I agree. But I never mentioned my own skiing in this thread or my own ankle use, so please don't make any presumptions. Maybe this year I'll get some video and you can give me your MA at that time. This thread is getting quite personalized, and I apologize to anyone who was offended by my observations, but none were intended, at this juncture I am going to have to hit the ignore button and move to greener pastures. Happy ankle flexing.
At this examiner's school (Whistler, by the way) they don't emphasize the flex of the ankle, but instead stress the flexing of the knee and hip joint. They do stress that the ankle not be "locked" by undue pressure on the front of the boot, and it would be my opinion that if the ankle can remain "boot neutral", it can flex as required to maintain appropriate stance and balance.
