Default Questions about first time splitboard riding

i went out in an intro to backcountry a couple weeks back with my new splitboard and just had a hell of a time dialing it in. Standing on the board in my garage it really felt like it was my normal stance, but when i got out there it seemed nearly impossible to make turns on it; what i cant figure out is if it was just me being so tired from skinning all day for the first time or if it was the metal plates under my bindings preventing me from really flexing the board

i used the voile DIY kit, goofy rider with angles at 9 and 12 and a wider than normal stance - i was thinking about opening up my stance a bit more to see if that helps but im curious if it just takes some getting used too

i will most likely take it out this weekend to my local hill and just bomb around to really get a feel for it before i go BC again
