Default Coming out of a boardslide

So I am an second year avid snowboarder. I go out about 3 times a week. I just started doing boxes this week and I have the 50-50 down pretty good. However everytime I do a boardslide I can't seem to turn myself back around at the end. Any tips? I am doing it frontside.

Rotate your upper body as you're locking on. You don't need much.

Rotate your shoulders in direction of the spin; look over your right shoulder with your ass pointing towards the end of the box/rail. As you near the end of the feature give yourself a little pop and turn your head & shoulders back to the left so your left shoulder is facing forward down-hill. This rotation should pull your legs around to your normal forward stance.

Great advice D. Also, if you want to come out regular, be sure to use plenty of counter rotation (explained in the video below)
