As I noted in a previous thread, I'm new to boarding. Just started in late November. I'm still getting used to speed and have been practicing straight runs a bit. My problems are - when I build up what I think is too much speed I: 1) tend to lean back or "sit in the back seat." (It is almost instinctual for me. It is as if I'm so afraid of the speed that I'm leaning away from it!); 2) get too nervous if I feel I'm going to fast and go into a turn. I'd like to get over that fear. I get especially nervous on steeper terrain.
