Default Turning help

I can do a heel side turn fine and a toe side turn fine but every time I try to link them together. From heel to toe when I finally get in that toe side turn i end up just slide slipping and by the time I can put my pressure on my front foot to get the board flat again I am already nearly at a complete stop.

When I got home to think about this I think maybe I'm putting to much pressure on my toes during my turn? I am also having the same problem heel side but I figure that the fix is the same with both of them.

Not to sure if this makes sense to anyone but I would be very thankful if someone could help me out.
What I am trying to do

What ends up happening - The Red just indicates me slide slipping heelside or toeside I get the edge switch but I am just getting to much edge switch & it's happening every time. I literally ran the same green 20 times trying to fix this today and I was just getting annoyed.

Honestly, hard to say without video, but are you following through with your turn?

One of the common problems with toeside turns is people start the turn, but only their lower body goes toeside while their upper body keeps pointing down the hill (because they want to look downhill).

Remember to put your whole body into the turn and keep your body aligned so that everything is going pointing your snowboard toeside.

Too much edge? Unlikely. Not enough edge? Very likely. If your turn is washing out, I'd look for some combination of going backseat during the turn and having very little edge. With that kind of situation you're basically going to end up doing a sideslip down the mountain.

Thanks I think you're right about me rushing out the turn. I do a lot better reading something out rather then see it getting presented infront of me so this should definitely help.
