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".
you don't have to be 100% in the direction of your nose, a skidded turn you're not completely riding on your edge. but you don't want to really just be side slipping with your nose a little further down the hill than your tail.
