Default Is this a bad habit or wrong?

Sup peeps, I have a question this is my second season riding and I can ride greens/blues and some blacks.I cant do my S-turns with no problem.But my question is I took a lesson about 3 weeks ago to sharpen up my skills.The Insructor was really cool and said that the only thing he can spot that I was doing wrong was that I needed more front leg extention,so I fixed that.He showed me board flex or the pedal motion to link turns.But when I link my turns, I can't do that pedal motion especialy at higher speeds.Note that I link them perfectly but is that a bad habit?

i guess I would have to see to be able to say. if your way works for you, I dont see how it could be "wrong". honestly teaching someone pedal motion is just to get muscle memory and the the correct feeling of turning, but naturally with time I think everyone kind of forms their own way

if its really bad i would imagine you would hit some sort of wall and have to correct it to keep progressing, but I cant really say without seeing...
