Am i doing something wrong or is it something i'll just have to get use to?
Just keep practicing on beginner slopes and you will get the hang of it. I still get sketchy when going fast on beginner slopes. You learn quickly and thats a bonus I learned to use my other foot(the one that usually is my front foot) to kick the board around. Just remember the technique of leaning into your turns and keeping your body centered over the board
It took me about 20 runs to feel comfortable. But I dont dare try going fast or on black diamond hills yet
