all help welcome.

i slide out and end up on my ass like every time.

new cable park is opening near home (aus) and would rather be hitting the rails than swimming back to dock all day

cheers.

Don't lean back. It's actually going to feel like you're leaning forward at first because you are so used to leaning back.

yeah russell is right. keep your weight even and it also helps to keep the handle close to your body, or the lower your center of gravity the lower the handle should be.

A difference of 4 cm in the tip and tail wouldn't make much difference apart from maybe more ollie height. Try to keep the rail between your feet to start out and boardslide it. The boat (or ski, cable, whatever is towing you) will pull you off the rail naturally since it won't be in line, unless the cable you're riding does line up directly overhead.

Forgot to add - bend your knees a lot, more than you think is necessary probably and try to stay off your edges when sliding, keep the board flat or you will slip out.
