dumb question on stance
I would say a lot depends on where your center of gravity is. That is most likely different from person to person. However, if you watch films of vert skaters who look fluid in their movements, I'd suggest to analyze what they do and emulate that.


: in PT i have been told that i should squat back more. i guess so that my knee doesnt go over the ball of my feet. i do this a lot w/ vert. to keep my ankles at 90 degrees would put my weight to far back. is there a way to do this? i think i would smack behind on vert. seems like its not good for knees.
: this is how i bend a lot w/ knee placement but frontstance dropping in to get my weight/balance forward
: heres me
