rudder foot is when a rider is pushing around his back foot to make turns which is bad because it puts your weight more towards the tail of your board as opposed to centered or slightly towards the nose, which is ideal. when your weight is over your back leg it makes it hard to control your turns, similar to trying to turn a bike while doing a wheelie.
in pivot turn the turn is initiated from the center of the board as opposed to the back, so instead of just pushing your back foot around you use both legs in countering movements. these are good to use in tight situations like tree or bump riding.
