like everyone else said...the more fwd lean you have, the more response u will have for heel-toe transitioning and this is because while riding, your knees are always bent and with ur hi-backs pushed fwd, it will give u a quicker response time of switching back to ur heel edge and vice versa.
bindings are also crucial. if u have a stiif board, soft bindings and ur hibacks set to neutral, then u will find ur bindings flexing FIRST, before ur board does. u eliminate this by pushing ur hibacks fwd or getting stiffer bindings.
since ur into park...i would mostly stick for a soft board/bindings and boots...that way u can leave your hibacks at neutral or even set back just a tad.
Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless
