I ride with my left foot back which is goofy when you skateboard not sure about snowboarding. Basically what im asking is why is turning/weaving taking so much energy out of me when other people are doing it effortlessly. Is it just something I need to learn as time goes on?
Also turning right seems to be hard for me. I ride goofy so turning right means Im turning into the mountain with my body facing upwards toward the mountain and my back facing downwards.
Sorry if this did not make much sense just leave a post below and ill try to clarify anything thats confusing. Thanks in advance guys.
if you ride goofy wouldnt turning right means back facing up hill?
anyways, learning proper edge control and front foot to add pressure to initiate turning.
also how are your bindings set up?
