If you have only been riding for 10days, I would focus on keeping you upper body quiet and making everything happen from the hips down. Keep your shoulders in line with the board and make your turns happen from the hips down. For a challenge, you can try making tight turns with your shoulders staying lined up with the fall line.
I use my upper body to enhance lower body moves. I have found that when riders bring upper body into the picture too soon, they end relying on it to much.
