When on toe side I tend to feel more comfortable toeing one handed as it straightens me up. Will this cause problems in the future cos I don't want to get into bad habits early on. Cheers.

What are you doing with the other hand??????

Hey Nick, try to hold on to the rope with both hands. Pull the rope close to your hip, this will help you balance. You can board with one hand on the handle, but you just can't get the line tension that you will need to progress, and it will make your arm tire quickly. Toeside is a very weird position for your body, just practice it a lot and you will get used to it.
Hope this helps some.

Nick, keep both hands on the rope. But when you land toeside think of looking at the shore, behind you. This will force your chest to point to the shore and make for a reliable landing toeside.

Thank you both for the good advice.
I'll be sure to put it in practice this evening ...

Go really fast and put the handle in your mouth - then you can have both hands free to do whatever you like - Hope to see you soon old boy, would be nice to hook up for a few.
