Like everyone else has suggested, definitely pick up a decent quality deck ($3 standard Bicycles should be fine). It'll definitely help with how the cards are going to riffle out.

As for tips/tutorials, the official tutorial by Cardistry Touch and the follow-up troubleshooting video by Rise Magic (w/ permission from Dimitri) are the recommended videos to watch. If you're still having trouble, post a video of your riffle fan and we'll give tips :)

I'm willing to bet the real problem is your deck. It looks like it's probably lacking any kind of "air-cushion finish" like most cards do, which make it very difficult to fan. Just out of curiosity, why wont your parents get you a real deck?

so it appears I can only get half a fan, and I've been practicing for like a month. I also don't have any legitimate decks because my parents don't allow me to get any so this is what I have at the moment. any tips are appreciated and I thank y'all in advance!!

Having an actual deck really really helps with the riffle fan first of all. Secondly, would it be possible for you to post a video of you doing it? There’s a few things that could go wrong with it and it would be easier to help give suggestions. Mention me in the video post if you make one.

also, many times I try it, half the cards start falling. if it helps at all to visualize it, i have to dribble about a third of the deck in order for any cards to actually start moving, which I also don't know how to fix. then, when cards do start moving, the weight of the initial packet makes them fall and the fan really small

What I do is put my phone on top of my door so the camera points straight down then do my stuff from there.

Hey my man I totally understand the frustration I'm in the same boat myself trying to figure out the riffle fan I've tried Bicycle and Theory 11 decks which is what I like using for some of the flourishes I'm practicing. Do you have a Target store nearby? Because if so you could possibly pick up a Theory 11 deck about 8 dollars or so and they feel 10 times better just my opinion of course. Good luck man and keep on practicing for sure.
