Ok, Last year when I was boarding. I was getting crazy air and landing my w2w..then I broke my ankle on a HS 180 and my lead foot came out of the binding, causing my body to twist around my backfoot that was still in a binding.

Anyways, this year I think my balls are gone. When I cut hard on my hs w2w and land, the boat is pulling me forward and I fall forward over my toes. I read a b unch of these thread and I tried keeping the rope tight to my lead hip. No good, as I still have the same problem.

What gives?

You might have your weight too far forward on your cut. Usually, you land with the same weight distribution that you take off with. On your cut and in the air, you should be in somewhat of a "sitting in chair" position, and you don't want the boat to pull you out of the chair. You should land with your weight slightly on your heels and leaning against the rope, edging back out into the flats on your heelside.
