Toe to heel, I just dont 'get it'
I'm still having problems going from toe to heel on turns. I have been riding mostly blues with a couple blacks and have to make wide turns to navigate the slope. This puts me at a pretty angled fall line down the slope. I can transition to toe edge very well, I even carve the toe at times without skid, but when I go flat and try to go back to heel, I literally hop the back of my board to get it over for my heelside turn. Im retaining balance well, but as soon as I try different methods discussed on this board, I feel 'locked' onto the edge and panic, either hoping out of the issue or going straight for a bit to regain balance (towards trees!) then hop into the turn.
I noticed that when I centered my weight a bit more toward center and off the back foot, and do a total weight shift, it feels like a more 'correct' type of riding style, but something that is learned later possibly as I just started doing this on my last time out on Friday. I'm going to be going Thursday night, hoping to get some ideas to try out. I seemed to have tried everything that I've read on this site, not sure what the issue is.
Even when going on cat trails, for the toe edge I can just lean to my toe and kickout my back foot to slow or turn, while on heel I have to make a more 'dedicated' turn to turn on the toe.
Riding straight still also confuses me, I'm usually riding an edge and always going in some direction even slightly.
