This is a fact that surprisingly hasn’t been recognized, but these are probably new words for Intermediate level people.
You might have thought “Well now that you mention it, that is true.”
However, I think that you haven’t compared these two on “edging”.
This isn’t a fact that intermediate level riders are very aware of.
For example, how do you make an edge angle quickly and strongly when initiating a turn?
This raises the quality of the turn, Advanced riders always focus on this.
If you do a spin in the park, can you generate a spin with a small edge angle that will allow you kicking straight down on the ground?
This raises the quality of the spin, Advanced riders are always careful with this.
Since the stances are completely different, then the muscles you use are also different.
There is a large difference on internal senses.
Intermediate level people are not aware of both of these differences, and they don’t notice the differences when they are doing both of them.
Therefore, their edging from when generating a spin is something closer to edging while turning.
They also can’t make an edging angle strong enough when turning, so the slopes that they can show their best performance on are also limited.
However, from now on you can practice each edging status of the two extremes depending on the situation.
Both of these are same difficult edging skills, but the destination of where you aim for both of them are completely opposite of one another.
