Because of that I tend to slightly heel or toe it then lose speed and have to unbuckle. Any advice? I am using rental equipment they set up.
It's generally accepted that you should always be on one edge or the other, never flat. As you get more experienced you won't have to edge quite so hard, and may be able to ride flat or really close to it. For now, always be turning (even if only a little bit).
