The line "You want to always travel toward the nose of your board! Not the toe or heel edge" is wrong and misleading for beginners. snowboarding is a 360 degree activity. My board is usually traveling toward another direction other than the "nose".
If you are traveling toward an edge you are not riding. You are either stopping or slowing down. True carving is always toward your nose (or tail in the case of switch).
I believe having a new rider skid some turns and call it riding is misleading!
