Not looking bad at all for 5 weeks. I agree with the feedback so far. The tilt issue that might be condition based(ICE). Its harder to tilt up on edge when your not sure your edge will hold. Due to the position of the body your toe edge will be easier to hold therefore giving you the ability to tilt more. Snowolf is dead on with what you should start doing next to move into better riding. Get lower (at the knees not waist). Add some twist to the board to initiate the turn then just sit back on heels or lean over your edge (on toes) to really drive that edge through the turn. This will take less effort than what your doing now. Literally when you get the feel for this you are doing about 5% of the work and your board will do the rest.GL
