Rear leg catches and drags
Search barred, couldnt find what i wanted. When I'm hitting rails my rear leg edge catches sometimes and throws me into getting my nuts slapped back in time.. I tried fixing this by tilting my back foot onto the edge facing up the hill, which is sweet on rails that are flat, but whenever I try to do it on a down rail I just wash out. Never really had this problem before but now it makes me heeps nervous to hit urban.. Anyone has this problem and resolved it.. It just feels unco tilting my back foot, especially since it makes my stance so much narrower.
Keep both skis flat on all types of rails/features, you shouldn't have to worry about tilting your back foot, that just unbalances your stance.
If you inside edge is catching you could try taking a gummy stone to your underfoot edge and detune it to your liking, I usually just let the rails do that for me, though.
Sounds like a simple issue of detuning your edge. Also after you wax make sure to scrape all the wax off your edges otherwise they will grab like no other
Detune theedges under your feet. Same problem happened to me on my pvc rail
my first rail ever i was so afraid of catching my front edges that i leaned back to angle both my feet forward and i practically landed on the rail on my hip
Common theme is detune, so i'll do that soon. But yeah I've been hitting my own set up lately which is PVC, it's happened a couple times on other rails, but it really digs into the pvc. Thanks guys
