Default Can i get some advice if i'm along the right tracks?

Hey, so last season was my first full season of boarding, i've once or twice a season for a few years but i put in about 15-20 sessions in last year. I progressed from falling leaf to what i think is pretty decent now for one full season. it was basically one day my buddy said, "dude put weight on your front foot when you do your toe side turn"

I tried it out the next run and turns started to just happen on their own when i shifted weight to the front foot. Is this proper technique? I would describe my toe side "turn" would be i put weight on my front foot down the hill and dig my toe in and let my knees bend, and then for heelside side transition i loosen up put weight on my front heel and just let things happens / dig in. Is this the proper way to do things?
I've basically boarded with people who bomb down and i try to keep up and mimick them along the way... they're pretty dynamic and I just wanted to know if this is the right way of doing things and if i'm progressing in the right direction/things to work on this season!
