His balance point is too far back.
Actually I'd say he's too far forward
He is pressuring the tails because CM is back, and won't go forwards.
If he's pressuring the tails how come they're breaking loose in phase 2 of the turn?
He does not use the qualities of the equipment at all, nor does he understand the role of pivotting. Half the time he rushes the turn by pivotting so much that his skis are angled as if the turn is already complete. The other half of the time he fails to complete the turn, moving the skis from side to side just after they cross the fall line. Patience is a good indicator that the equipment is being used. There is no indication he's aware of what shaped skis do -- one could ski exactly like this on pencils.
The skill of timing and coordination can mask deficiences in skiing. The skier establishes a rhythm that becomes their primary focus. That will ingrain technical errors even further.
I'd suggest that the stance and balance skill and pivoting should be the focus of any corrective actions. He also needs to know what a turn is....
My 2 cents.
