its quite obvious actually. when you tuck like a racer your just asking to be ass rammed.

because they actually have some knowledge regarding skiing outside of a park so they don't suck at skiing like most kids on here do. if you are a good skier, take no note of what i just said, it wasn't directed towards you
Being out there skiing every day, good or bad, just playing around with friends, with no contests or filming- that is the real spirit of skiing for me. that is why i started skiing, and if i lose those moments that is what will make me stop skiing.
if you're talking about the 'newschool' tuck of sitting down on your tails (although I'm pretty sure skiers have been doing it for years), the reason I do it now and then is just because it's fun to do.
As far as I know, the way a 'racer' tucks is probably the most affective way to tuck, as far as having control, and minimal wind resistance.
Just do what's fun though, that's why you're on the hill.
the 'racer tuck' is more aerodynamic. Park riders dont do it just leaning over a little cause theyre lazy and think it looks bad. i remember a couple years ago in the x games, tanner tucked like a racer to get speed
^ off balance, fowardin your boots befoe taking off,
or leaning back to the point of sitting down?
sitting down is just as fast,
but racers dont do it for the obvious reason that you get NO control and cannot turn effeciently at all.
Everything under the sun is in tune,
But the Sun is eclipsed by the moon
because racers are tucking for a lot longer than we are

Sitting on the backs of your skis is a really bad idea. If one of your skis slips out theres a big chance youll twist your knee and fuck it up. Seriously its not worth going out for the whole season for.
