I'll try to get a video of me riding the next time I go out. But thanks a lot for the advice.
My EASY ADVICE: Think of flexing your toes up when initiating a heel side turn. It forces you to keep your weight on the front foot, and gives you a mental map of how go about distributing your weight correctly
