My wife Annie and I just got back from Aspen . We do a type of snowboarding thats called carving. You use hard boots and a narrow snowboard and your feet mounted almost straight ahead. The idea is to lay over on the turn so the body is almost touching the ground and you never want to slide the tail of the board.. You can feel the G's as you pull into a turn. It's just like surfing and alot like supping. You can see in the video on Vimeo call Chasing Doyle,,,that you use your hand in the turn just like you use the paddle for support and a pivot point. It's a fantastic feeling and you need about a 10 foot wave to get the same feeling plus you get about 100 turns per run. Check out the video
