Having trouble with Heelside turns.

I can ride fakie as well as do toeside turns perfectly, but I can't for the life of me do heelside. Any tips besides practice? Also, if you can't tell, I am a beginner and was wondering what I should do next after learning Heelside.

I'm not an instructor so I'm sure there are better ideas people could give you but one thing that helped me when learning heelside was to lean the high backs on my bindings forward a little bit, it kept me from letting the board get flat and catching an edge. I still ride my bindings to this day with an 8 degree forward lean.

Help from anyone is great, since it's easy to say nothing. I'll try that next time I go. Also, killer pain in my right foot only. I'm thinking it's cause of the angle on my board, 15/-2, but I have no idea.
