On flatland I am still raised up on my toes. Similar to if i had my foot on an accelerator in the car. I have a hard time just riding straight on flatland I feel like the board is constantly sliding back and forth. When you say forward lean are you talking the angle the bindings are set on the board? My front foot is usually +15 maybe +21(not too sure since they are usually rental boards and never really know what an ideal set up is like) My back foot is usually straight perpendicular to the board. Would angling my back foot towards the tail more help?
