beginner, and help, weight distribution and turning
Went boarding for the first time in like 4 years, and never really got hte hang of it four years ago. I managed to do ALRIGHT, and improve tremendously from how I was when I went those 4 years ago, but just wondering about a few things,
I rented, had a 160cm, don't konw the degrees, but I'm guessing most rentals are the same, and I'm regular. Had trouble skating, as I couldn't keep my front leg turned enough to push off and go straight, don't think i was parallel to hte board though at all, and couldnt find a spot to put my foot after I push off, should I put my foot in between hte two bindings?, or behind both after pushin off. there was no stomp pad so I was a little confused.
next, early on, I was getting pains in the bottom part of the right part of my back, and my right leg, forcing me to have to rest A LOT, they never seemed to go away. it wasn't like they were hurt, just kept feeling MAJORLY fatigued almost at all times. my front foot was being used for anything, but i remember reading and hearing u should always lean on your back foot?
also, was takin me forever to turn from heeledge to toe edge, and was also tough to know when to switch? and how? and was gettin my worried, because although id be on an edge, i'd be going straight down and not really carving, just on an edge, as it took me a while to transition , and zigzag from right to left to right, etc.. also, any idea how to overcome hte speed fear? i was doin good, and hten i spilled a few times pretty hard, and from there on out was a complete wuss,
lastly, when im on a toe edge or heel edge, how should my body be leaning, if that makes sense?
know its alot, but i feel like i need a lotta work, going up again, in a couple weeks so i can use all the help i can get,
