Default definite noob question

how do u slow down when your snowboarding? I mean when your skiing you just turn to the side of the mountain, but what about snowboarding?
I looks like snowboarders go a lot faster than skiers too.

by turn to the side of the mountain, you mean carving, snowboarders and skiers both carve their way down the mountain to avoid picking up too much speed. or if you're talking about stopping, all we have to do is lean back on the uphill edge

Also, in my experience, skiirs go faster. I generally go boarding with a mixed crowd and the skiiers are generally ahead of us by a decent amount.

imo too skiers can go faster than snowboarders. If you are good snowboarder then you can go pretty fast too, but still skiers have more potential to go faster than snowboarders i think.

Dirtyeggroll, I'm assuming since you're learning, you haven't taken any lessons yet?
Try heel sliding down a hill. That will give you a feeling for what it should feel like to stop. Same goes for toe sliding down the slopes.
When you're going down sideways, you'll want to bring your rear leg forward either onto it's toe edge or heel edge to slow down.
