Well I've been trying these for the last 2 weeks or so and can't ride them off. I'm having trouble keeping the board moving forward when I jump so that I don't land on the nose.

I've tried biasing weight towards my front foot, jumping higher, etc but can't get it.

Any suggestions?

This is what i do.. put my front foot in the normal position for riding, about 3/4 the way up the board, then i dont focusing on jumping high, but jumping straight up and keeping my body over the board. heres a picture of landing one.. notice how im centered over the board and coming down in a good position.

Told and shown like a true pro!!! Vance, keep kickin man, I like what I see every time. Its guys like you that make it look easy that make guys like me frustrated when its not.

Me, I try to “push” the board forward more once it’s out of the water.

Take it easy…

they are easy, just turn your body.

really easy at the cable park, I think the upward pull makes it easier to not get pulled over on this move
