Learning Curve: Don’t Follow the Leader

Sometimes it may seem wise to follow the line of the guy in front of you, however that’s not always such a great idea. Take the line that best fits you and your style. Everyone is different in some way or another. Whether its stance, weight, board setup, personal preference, ect, it’s always smarter to hurl your self down the hill based on your own decisions. Here’s a clip to get an idea of how following the leader can complicate things with a little bonus raw run to get you to the bottom of the run.
