I was hoping someone could give me a couple of tips on being more consistent with ts w2w and with hs fs 180s.

I'm trying to concentrate on switch riding as of late (to feel comfortable on the 180s), and ts wake jumps.

Here's the issue: although I can clear a small-medium sized wake on the toeside without too much issue, it seems like when I really try to cut in moderately hard and float one out on the massive wake of a friend's Nautique, I ALWAYS slip out the back. I was getting so frustrated recently that I started working on ts fs 180s just so I could land switch heelside instead of landing ts.

I'm trying to work on keep my weight more centered and keeping the rope down around my left hip area. I think my problem may be that I can't stop looking toward the boat. So instead of landing and looking toward shore or down at the board or whatever, I try to look at the boat and that prevents me from continuing to edge out toeside.

Does anyone have any tips that can help get me consistent? I've set a deadline for the end of March for getting consistent on these basics and I'm hoping to accomplish this riding a solid twice a week (more if I'm lucky) up until that time.

Thanks in advance.
