Absolutely, most people have a tendancy to want to lean back and put too much weight in back. I had to remind myself to lean forward constantly and then lean forward more than what felt like enough. That aversion to leaning down the hill is a huge hurdle but when you overcome it you will progress much better because you will be able to steer the board with your front foot. As an outsider looking in, if youre not leaning forward and controlling the board with the correct pressures then you might want to wait a bit on the carving till you get a better feel for it. Just my .02 happy shredding
