As far as advice goes; to turn, put pressure on your front foot and swivel your back foot. turning your head to where you want to go is a good tip as well. Also keep in mind that it is nothing like skiing. You can't go very slow snowboarding or you'll fall down. Just like riding a bike, the faster you go the more stable you are. Don't go too fast but if you keep falling down, try and go a little faster. And if you are going to fall, fall on your back, not on your front, it hurts less. And have a lot of fun, I love snowboarding, its a blast.

Thank you bobcat awesome advice, I have seen some boards for 250 quid here but got to buy all the other stuff too. I am so looking forward to this its 25quid for an hour, going to be awesome.
