Sperm Turns???

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Could someone tell me what kind of turn a skier is making when he is said to be making "sperm turns"? :

Locked feet, usually in the backseat, forcing their skis to turn using a powerful upper body counter-rotary movement. Funny name isn't it?

Another way to look at it is it describes tail waggers.

Also has been called "Dig Me" skiers, because its a style of skiing often not motivated by wanting to feel good, but rather by *thinking* it looks good.
