Toe side turn/stop for 7 year old boy?
I'm trying to teach my 7 year old son how to ride. First time he was out, I had him take a 2 hour private lesson and he was able to learn the basics and ride down the bunny hill without falling for the most part. He would go straight down and do a heel side stop. He couldn't turn though.
Last time out (2nd time out) he can do a heel side turn but he just couldn't do a toe side turn. I've told him to try to put weight on his front toes but he is not able to make the turn to his toe side. He may not have the lower body strength to twist the board yet.
I've seen some youtube videos of little kids turning and it looks like many of them are doing pivot turns or back foot rudder turns. Should I try to teach him pivot turns?
I'm trying to get him started right so that he doesn't get into any bad habits that may be hard to break later on.
