I took a lesson 11 years ago (only 1) and that was all I really snowboarded until last year. My boyfriend taught me and he was much more helpful. You're seem like an idiot until you get a feel for it, like driving a car. I mainly stayed on my heels as a lot of people do (to stop) and would kill my thighs doing that cuz it wears them out. Then I went straight down and would stop on my heels every so often. Then my boyfriend said I HAVE to switch from heels to toes in order to take the pressure off my thighs and make an S shape, so I would do that a little and stop on my heels a lot. Well now (2nd year) I do heels and toes perfectly, but when I gain too much speed I make myself nervous cuz I don't wanna fall at that speed lol and slow myself down on my heels, and then I continue. It takes time but you'll figure it out.
