Day 2 : Took another lesson

A month ago I went boarding for the first time. I took a lesson and spent the day on the magic carpet bunny hill.

Today was day 2 and I took another lesson. 2 runs on the bunny hill and we were gone to the left and a larger slop (still a green).

Holy crap, what a frustrating sport this is to learn.

I am able to link skidded turns, but the last thing he had me do is try carving. Getting up on edge and holding it. Toe side I did pretty well, but heel side was a train wreck. I would always over rotate and do almost a skidded stop.

I also found myself still putting too much weight on my back foot.

Are these common beginner issues?
