Learning to turn
Hi, I am learning to snowboard, got myself some gear. I am having trouble learning to link my turns at fast speeds and trails that are more steep or narrow, or hard pack/ icy. Especially going from my toe side to heel. I get scared and slow to near stop, or until I get to a not so steep part before turning. I catch onto my heel side and fell quite a few times. I seem to turn fine naturally from heel to toe. My friend told me to adjust the stance and bindings, and I have read the sticky with the stance.
It says, "A wider stance will give more stability but makes the turn transitions harder." Also a setback would "make more aggressive turns." And a centered stance would make the board turn easier and give more control.
Does this mean I should have a more narrow stance, and have less setback? I have the impression that a wider stance would give you more control turning.
Also, I have learned with duck stance of around 12/-9; tried forward for the last 2 times 21/9, and 21/6. Would a different angle help? There is also seem to be quite a bit of pressure going to the back foot when I turn, and the feet twists in the boots, or the boot twists in the binding a little.
I do fine at slow speed, and on easy green wide trails. Any advice on helping to link turns or going from toe side to heel side is welcomed. Thanks!
