once you learn to ride switch, 180s come pretty easy. All my friends are struggling on 180s because they cant ride switch, I learned wake 2 wake 180s in my first tries because i was able to land switch comfortable. Recently I am consistent now on all my 180s except bs.

Stick with it. Practice riding switch a lot to get more comfortable. I was able to land switch but was very uncomfortable riding switch. That has changed a lot since I spent a weekend just going slow (like 16mph) and doing a lot of surface 180's and switch riding. I now need to nail ollies switch and I'm good...only taken a month!!!

Boats in the shop for 3 weeks but my Father-in-law has an I/O pontoon...I think I'll be getting a lot of switch practice this weekend!!! Oh, and Umali's post of progression is a really good one to follow.

Eric
