I'm a beginner trying to stick my heelside wake 2 wake jumps and am having a problem getting in the proper landing position. I've been really focusing on my progressive edging and standing tall at the wake to receive maximum pop. For a while, that was an issue with me but now I am getting the pop and getting pretty decent air. Problem is that when I get into the air, I have no idea what to look at (I know not to look down) and I keep getting pulled over forwards towards the boat and landing head first (body goes straight into the water and board stays on top as I shoot out of my bindings). Its getting pretty frustrating as its reaking havoc on my front ankle coming out of the bindings every time, so I'd like to try to avoid this being pulled over manuever.

Can anyone suggest what I'm doing wrong? Am I letting the rope out in the air and getting pulled over? I know that you're suppose to pull the handle to about your waist/belly button and keep it in tight, so this might be my problem. Also, what am I suppose to look at in the air? The tower or shore/horizon I'm going towards?

Please help, my ankles can't take much more of this crashing and coming out of my bindings.
