So, my question still stands. You reported that there was very little non carving training going on at Hood. This data point I've provided suggests HH is not in step with that current trend, as you observed it. Will he be sticking to his guns in focusing on non carved turns in his training methodology?
|Semi-aggressive tail push? You must be kidding.
Again, I'm not kidding. I really don't understand your confusion about that. Usually, if I kid, I include a laugh face, or a wink, so people will know.
Yes, the non carving in that video is a version that includes redirection prior to a pressured engagement later. Can't see it? Check out when the snow flys in most the turns. Nothing,,, nothing,,, nothing,,, then a big poof around the time the skis reach the falline. I'm not criticising it,,, just identifying the form of non carving being used in those turns.
I was just wondering if he also teaches a smoother initiation, with less pre engagement redirection in his non carving progression? I do in mine. Check out the final non carving segment of this video I put together.http://youtube.com/watch?v=2Fs2jkOA74o
There is virtually no redirection happening prior to pressured engagement, and the pressure and snow fly remains much more consistent through the entire turn. That's in contrast her earlier non carving segments, where some redirection is taking place, pressure application is delayed, and snow fly is more consolidated later in the turn.
There are many forms of non carving, as you can see in my video. I was just curios if Harald focuses on more than the one featured in his video.
|And why do you continue to bring PMTS into this thread?
As to your suggestion, I'm providing more data points for consideration. I've added two new ones for you, and everyone. This thread is about what race coaches are teaching. HH is a race coach, and so am I. Strangely enough, when it comes to bucking the trend of "carving only
" you think you observed, he and I are apparently in agreement in leaning towards the non-conventional.
