Release pressure on the edge by stretching.

7.2 Extension turn carved

The stretching turn or up unweighted turn, also exists when carving. One of the main advantages remains the same as with the skidded version. You can turn more dynamically. However, we can achieve even more with this technique when carving.

Make a up unweighted turn when carving

With a carved up unweighted turn, we start low, stretch ourselves to a high position for the edge change and then slowly squat down again until the next turn. The difference between the carved and the skidded version is mainly that when carving, we can't slow down by skidding during the turn.

Using the forces that are being created

The movements create forces that we can use. By squatting low after edging, we can edge up quickly and hard, in other words, apply a lot of pressure to the edge. If you concentrate on the front foot, you can then initiate the next turn so that you don't skid even on steeper terrain.

By stretching before changing the edge, we reduce the pressure on the snowboard so that we can change the edge very easily. However, if we stretch a little more dynamically, we can use the energy to edge over with a jump, for example. If we stand on the edge like when carving, we have an extremely stable position for jumping off.

Chaning the edge in a low position as an alternative

A second way to carve more dynamically is to edge deeply, which you need for laydown carves, for example. You can find out more about this in the following module 7.3 Flexion turn carved
