So I know the answer to this question will be to just get out there and practice, but would love some helpful tips on edging sw ts. Last year I landed a few sw scarecrows, however I had alot of trouble getting it down because I couldn't get the right edge I needed. I would really like to dial this this year, but could use some useful tips ideas or whatever to help me out with my cut.. Thanks

Hows your switch TS w2w and switch TS fs 180's? I have met a lot of people who can do switch crows that have not mastered the switch ts w2w jump first. In general the peeps with the best switch ts basics can do a much more controlled and "organized" switch ts bag of tricks. I cannot do sw crows but had a pretty decent sw ts w2w going for a while (neglected maintaining the trick through continual use). BTW my switch TS w2w was at 80ft with a big wake (3k+) to make things clear. Its a LOT easier on a smaller wake with a shorter rope...which is how I started learning switch TS...slowly progressing to a longer line and bigger wake.

When I cut in switch TS I focus on the following items: Handle in close to lead hip, leaning down the line and not into the wake, (rolling my lead shoulder over the handle helps this), almost all my weight on the back foot (until I get more comfortable at the trick), as I leave the wake I focus on keeping the handle close to my body throughout the air and keeping my knees bent and in tight to my body to help with control.

Keep us posted and good luck with it.

Practice body position edging away from the wake. (opposite side)
