Hey, thanks for the replies:
1. Don't think the board is set up reverse.
2. Seems I am "washing out" on the turns.
3. Yeah, maybe I need to give it more time. It's just frustrating to be able to be proficient with one and totally awful with another. Maybe technique, maybe more confidence on the rental. Used another rental at another hill and also had no probs but don't know what brand it was, something cheap.
4. Good point about lesson...maybe I'll try.
