SO I CAN GET UP SWITCH AND THEN RIDE OUT TO EITHER SIDE OF THE WAKE BUT ONCE I START COMING BACK IN TOWARDS THE WAKE I GET KICKED BACK INTO MY NORMAL RIDING STANCE (CREATING A BUTTER SLIDE OR SURFACE 180) WHICH IS ALL FINE AND DANDIE BUT I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO CROSS OVER THE WAKE IN MY SWITCH STANCE. ITS KIND OF STARTIN TO BUG, ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Yo Ali, what you gotta think about is standing tall & strong like you do on a normal wake jump. I am terrible at switch and have recently been putting some time into it. I was having issues unti lI realized I wasn't riding like normal. Try & mimmick your regular jumps. Go for a switch set where you do nothing but switch carving and little jumps. You will get the hang of it. If you are sliding back to regular it sounds like you are not transferring your weight to your back foot & keeping your weight on your front foot(the regular back foot). Try transferring your weight and really emphasizing a strong edge and release.

Try Scarecrows they are easier. On switch just like normal you gotta stand tall & as we say "hump the handle". Good luck have fun. I gotta find a chick into wakeboard progression...
