Chandler Cargile: Using Video Review to Improve Your Barefooting

Saturday, October 26th, 2013

There have been many things help me learn a new trick such as the coaching, the training, the encouragement, and reviewing videos. It is amazing how much it has helped me in my skiing after watching my skiing and studying it closely. The reason it helps watching video is because I can watch my own skiing and watch where I am messing up, plus I can watch it in slow motion and get into detail on where I am really going wrong. Even more than watching my own skiing, watching Keith St. Onge’s slalom and David Small’s jumping and tricks have helped me a numerous amount of times. Watching it has shown me how down weighting and being slow on the jump gives you big pop and keeping the handle out gives you more distance and time to come down on top of your feet. It has also shown me, in slalom, I am supposed to be aggressive on the transfers, shoulders forward and drive as hard as possible. And in tricks, I see how every turn is supposed to be slow and every turn is a one foot turn with a quick handle pass.

Watching my videos and going back and watching theirs has made a big help in my skiing. I recommend other skiers watch their and then watch Keith and Dave’s. It unbelievable how much it really helps.
