that was me in my first 2-3 days of riding - i had no concept of torsional flex on the board, and I was pretty much throwing my upper body into heel/toe traverses. Then I discovered this forum + youtube + everything else on the internets.
i'm in pretty much the same situation as stillz, i'm a college student and buying equipment/season pass is pretty much the equivalent of wiping out my savings
But thanks everyone for the responses! I'll take it down a notch and get more comfortable with the standard stance and then take it from there!
