i was teaching my niece toe side turns this year. she's 10. poor kid took some hellish face plants. never even phased her though. i wish my body worked like that now, lol.

after she got it down fairly well i told her to start practicing riding switch. it's easier when you're first starting out. also told her to start playing with the flex of the board and pressing tail/nose presses. it's all about board control in the beginning imo.
