This is the way of transferring from one edge to another which allows using short turns more confidently and without loss of control. It is characterized by low body position already in the beginning of the turn.
The technique of inclinations has several shortcomings:
The main task of down-unweighting as a kind of vertical motion is the change of the edge. Also it provides maximum control over the board in any moment because your body is always at the same distance from snow. Besides unlike up-unweighting in this case the contact between your board and snow is kept almost all the time even in moments of changing the edge.
Right after you changed the edge your knees are bent, your weight is distributed 50:50 between your legs. Next you have to straighten your knees smoothly until the desired moment of edge change. Remember that any vertical motion should be performed during the whole phase of turn! Too early or too harsh straightening of legs decreases the efficiency of down-unweighting as a kind of vertical motion.
To change the edge you need to bend your knees harshly thereby removing your weight from the edge and to direct your body to the side of the next turn. Right in the beginning of the next turn your weight should be 50:50 again and your knees should be bent.
You shouldn’t bend your knees ‘BEFORE’, ‘DURING’ or ‘AFTER’
You should bend your knees ‘FOR’ edge change!
As you see depending on your preferences you can bend your knees in wide time range and this is why down-unweighting is so comfortable – when you want to change the direction of your motion simply pull your legs, your board unweightens and you change the edge. It is very important to bend your knees without bending your back otherwise it will cause disbalance on the board. All that you need to think about at the moment of edge change is: bending your legs and keeping your back straight!
