I ride a system sometimes at lanier and i keep having trouble with the turning around part,i feel like a noob when i fall even though i can land 360's , are you sopposed to edge on your toes to turn the board after you edge out on heels and let it pull me around?

I would suggest watching other riders and pick up how they are making the corners. When i rode the 2.0 for the first time, I would edge, sink in the water, and get back up like a deep water start. I got real tired doing it that way. Once I started to figure the cable thing out, I would edge like your being whipped behind a boat, and then would make a carve on my toeside edge and start heading the other direction. Its timing and practice out on the water.

What Tarek said. As you get to the end you want to edge out heelside as far as possible and start to make a toeside turn. The tricky part is how well you make the corner really depends on the person driving the 2.0 carrier. As soon as you see the carrier to start going back the other way start making your toeside turn. You'll also want to keep a lot of weight on your back foot so it doesn't pull you out the front. When I tried it last year I had 2 different drivers and it made all the difference when someone knew what they were doing. Otherwise yes, if you are sinking all of the time it gets really hard on your arms.
