    I can't do a heel turn to save my life or even to control to slide on heels to save my life 🙁 I'm only good with the toes :/

    The video proved to me very helpful to me, thank you for the upload!

    A note to fellow beginners. I saw on some YT channels and read on the web many different instructions – that you initiate turns with edging / feet / ankles / leaning, etc. Being a good skier now, I can see some of those are correct but I think they are more appropriate for high speed riding. In skiing, they are similar to carving or parallel ski turns. But you should not teach carving or parallel ski turns without teaching wedge and wedge christies first.

    So, in my opinion, this video teaches you sort of the ski wedge. This, together with "lots of miles" of toe and heal sliding (going left and right as well), made my snowboarding day #4, which was after I watched this video. Days 2 and 3, before I watched this, were a waste!

    I have been trying to do turns. My instructor said I was to look 90 degrees to the side to turn from heel edge to flat board. I am struggling to get the turn. I can go to about 45 degrees and can’t seem to get anymore turn to flat board in a controlled way. The board picks up way to much speed and I end up freaking out and bailing. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi all, turning your body first into the turn really helps when turning. Thanks Kevin

    Is it easier to control a lighter and shorter beginner snowboard?

    Hey, great tips. I am grateful for the hard work you put in to help so many novice snowboarders out there. It's going to be my first time in a couple of weeks and I have the following questions:

    1. Does a person's height generally make it more difficult as opposed to being shorter? (I am 187 cm tall)
    2. I learned how to ride a bike when I was 25. Besides that, I never did any sport that required a good balance. Does having experience with any board sports play a role in the speed of the learning process?
    3. Thanks, you are awesome!

    Many thanks from Bulgaria!
    Alex

    This is a very helpful video, thank you.

    One small question though, why at 2:57 do you do a toe-side turn and then "Face top of slope". Usually I tell people to look where they are going. Also by turning the head uphill this can allow the board to continue to rotate so you spin a 360.

    I've gone snowboarding 4 times now for about 2-3hrs each time, have had 2 group lessons and I'm still not confident or comfortable enough, 2nd time I hurt my coccyx bad, the 4th time I bruised my knees… I got toe edge and sliding on toe edge down, but I can't get heel edge, not sure if it's just more intimidating looking down the mountain, as I turn myself to look down I freak out… I immediately try going on my heels and I fall EVERY single time

    I am totaly comfortable when doing heel turn, whereas a lot of times toe turns intimidate me. Why is that? 😪

    Thanks for the great vid! Today I went to snowboard for the first time in my life. After 8 hours of practice (and falling :D) I think I finally mastered the turns!

    it's so hard to turn when riding straight because when I was moving my back foot I kept faling on my butt because my edge got stuck in the snow and that's why and now I cant iven move my butt 😟 😖

    Second time boarding this weekend up at White Pass in WA. These videos have helped me so much! I have a feeling toe turning is going to be the death of me this season though, so that's my goal for this year at least!

    I've been snowboarding for 8 years but don't know how to explain to my friend how to turn because it's natural to me now. so I'm hoping this video will help me explain to him. and also show him and see if he understands

    Every time I try turning with my body facing the top of the slope I fall backwards and my head whips the ground. RIP to turns
