You have to get out there and throw yourself around. It's snowboarding. 3 weeks later I could 360, and one week after that I landed my first front flip. No teachers involved. Just a desire to do it and a lot of IbProfein
This is complete horse shit and you should not be giving advice. Doing what you recommend is how people get hurt, and every time I see some fuckstick pointing his board straight downhill without knowing how to turn I want to kick them in the teeth. Trial and error are the best teachers for idiots that don't know how to listen and those who refuse to take direction.

Get the girl a group lesson, and if she has a decent instructor she will be making turns in 2 hours.
