so you can't w2w switch? or regular? If you can regular already then doing it switch is more of a matter of getting comfortable riding switch. It literally is the same thing with your back foot forward. So i would suggest just cruising around switch getting comfortable with switch riding and then progressively work on going w2w switch. Don't just charge it, it can get a little rough lol.

I suck at riding switch.
So i started out riding very slow, 18 or so, on a short rope jumping about halfway across doing switch heel 180s.
I slowly sped up and got more and more comfortable.
It's important to be very comfortable doing the 180 off the wake before speeding up. At this point I've done a 100 switch heel 180s and the edge in still feels very awkward to me, but the landing is very easy.

Starting slow and working your way up is much easier than going balls out. Take the extra time so you don't hurt yourself on something so basic.
