Ya... you will want to make sure you have who ever is pulling you slow down the boat to about 12-14 mph or whatever you can handle.....and if you have a board with shorter fins or no fins like I ride.. as well that may help a little from catching them in the water.....but really it is very basic......just move the handle towards your other hip which would be your left hip if you rode regular like me......and at the same time transfer your weight from the right foot to your left foot if you ride regular other wise it would be the opposite if that makes sense......try the DVD Higher Learning very good for all basic and other tricks.....the BOOK dvd is good too but cost more...I hope that helps.....Also try to do it right behind the boat at first then outside of the wake left side and right.....it ends up actually being easier outside the wake since the pull of the boat back toward the middle of the wake helps.... Tobin .....P.S. I hope I understood this post right you want to learn to ride switch right? LOL!!!

try with the boat speed slower like tobin said, keep your weight on your heels, and when you switch make sure you switch your weight to your back leg!!!!! that will keep you from taking some hard falls!!! keep the rope at your waist too! it will help keep you more stable!
