Buyer’s guide for ski-specific protection socks
Once you master the basics at skiing, you will focus on progression and you’ll soon be carving. Forget about sketchy skid turns, carving is the most elegant way of skiing, smooth, effortless, fast. In order to carve efficiently, you need to stop leaning backward and bring your weight back on the center of the ski. In this position, your shin should be pushing on the tongue of your boot. This will allow you to ski faster, in a more aggressive way and with more control. The problem with this skiing style is the pain it causes on the shin. Being constantly pushing on them can create friction and the faster you’ll ride the harder you’ll push. If you want to avoid this simply, you can.
