30 psi...in the front?
What tires are you on?
I'd roll my RT-615s right off the rim at those low of pressures.
38-40 is the minimum I'll run up front, but more often than not, i'm at 43-45psi cold.

Here's a great discussion we had on the subject:

Nye I am going to give you the same advice everyone gives but is absolutely true,

Meet people, asks tons of questions, learn as much from others as possible, and try to get someone to go with you on your course walk.

and most of all have fun... Oh yeah and slow is fast or I should say smooth is fast. So if you need slow down a bit.

UnFocusedST I used low tire pressure (30lbs) front and rear because the higher the pressure the more sliding I did (including a complete 180 with a stall). One piece of good advise though. If you can see the cone in the turn you are NOT close enough.
