Default Need carving help (video of me riding)

Just some background info:

- Vid is from my first day of the season so I'm stiff / rusty / tired from waking up at 5am and driving 3 hours
- I'm in the red jacket
- I think this is the 8th day I've ever been on a snowboard

If you just want to mute/ just watch my parts go to:

0:25-0:47 (I think this was the first run of the season actually)
1:15-1:26
1:45-2:00 (you can see me infront, I tried making quicker turns)
3:02-3:10






I'm driving up again on Wednesday and would really appreciate any comments/tips/suggestions/things to focus on.

I posted this in the video forum, and a poster said I'm using my back foot to rudder the board. I only took one lesson and they never even got to linking turns, just falling leaf... so I learned the rest by myself and never had anyone show me how to properly carve.

oh also, my board (NS SL) has a slight setback, would that play any factor in making me rudder the board more or is it just my lack of skill? I'll go look over the board and post the measurements/how I have my bindings set up to make sure its ok.

Thanks!!
