Weight control can be acomplished by placing you hips in one of three spots. over the toes(or just slightly past)push the hips, Center of feet(relaxed), and Over the heels(or just slightly past) pulling of the hips.
For practicing nose and tail presses first find some flat ground. Strap in. Play with moving your hips over nose and tail of the board. Then practice slidding the board with your feet under your left and ride sides. Next move your hips over tail or nose and pull your other leg towards you slightly and then stand up a little taller with the foot you have your weight on. Next try this again, this time combine the hip movement with the feet sliding movement to get there quicker. Once you can hold a tail or nose stand for a couple of seconds find a slight incline and try riding a flat board straight down it. Attempt the movement like you did standing still. Once you have this dialed in, try it on slightly steeper terrain. attempting to go further each time.
