Default Toeside turn need some help

Alright this is my first season boarding and have already gone three times so far and have only been going down greens and one blue doing heelside "falling leaf" style. But every time i try to go from a heelside turn to a toeside turn i face plant could anyone give me any tips on how to properly do it?

If you do your toe-side turn and your toe-side is your up-heel edge, you should be good.

If you edge on your toe-side and your toe-side is your down-heel edge, you will face plant.

I think he meant uphill and downhill edge. Basically if you dig in your downhill edge, your board will stop abruptly and you won't.

Just do what Wolf suggests and don't get discouraged. Keep trying and have fun.

You've gone (only) three times. You're very close. It all "clicked" on my fourth time. Took eight times for some of my friends.

Ooo Ooo next time try the legendary fabled ground trick known as the "Scorpion" you'll look super bad ass. Get some momentum going downhill then try and catch your downhill toe edge!!!! SO much fun

I never took a lesson and saw a instructor teaching heelside falling leaf so i just started doing that
