usually when u fall on your face you either clip and edge or you pull the rope in too far. So just relax and lean back and bend your knees a litle bit and make sure you dont pull on the rope and you should be fine

Don't lean back too far. Thats what i was doing at first. It is really easy, just relax bend your knees and turn. It also depends on the board you have. I have a Shane board and it is so smooth the turn on, but my old obrien was a bitch to get turned.

Assuming your regular foot...just pull the handle to your right hip and lean back a bit. I heard that somewhere and it helped me.

no fins on is fin its just a weight transfer forward some and like the other guy said take the handle to the other hip. it also helps me sometimes when i was learning to edge some when switching back to reg

when you do a water start, try to keep your board in a 90 degree and ride as long as you can, should give you the balance to do surface 180's and be comfortable.

B..

surf the wake a bit and use the wake as a tool.. butterslide then let go with the front hand.. back in the day when i had huge fins and couldnt'do surfaces 180's I'd always use the wake for it..

i learned surface 180 by doing them as soon as the boat pulls you out of the water. the low speed and agitated water just makes it easy. then try them on top of the wake. your fins will break loose easier on the crest of the wake.
