Try to bend your knees a bit more and pull the backknee towards your frontknee. This prevents riding the board to flat (works for snowboarding too). Don't stand stiff on your board. Better lile a Panther preparing to jump :wink:

And if you see a rotating blur at high altitude, it is "crouching tiger" Louis C.

I will also probably get towed on a wakeboard to get familiar.

I really didn't expect this problem. Anyone else with this while they were starting out?

It took me a little while, too.
You'll get used to it very quickly, though.

I would they its normal. You´ll get used to ride in both directions after a while. (You have to, otherwise you´ll nevver get back to the point where you started.)

For me this problem is even worse with jumping. I have a real chocolate side when jumping. With my left hand in front I can do 360ies and grapped jumps, with my right hand in front I fly like a sick duck.

I have a similar problem:
Regular is my normal side. Here, I can do all my jumps (stiffys, sometimes dead men, rotations, transitions)
On the other side, I can only do something with a spin. Otherwise I always screw up my launch and crash in a weird way.
My guess is you havee to try twice as hard on your weak side. Only that I tend to be lazy...

If it wouldn´t be so anoying to get back to the board or even restart the kite after a hard crashlanding when jumping goofy...

Btw: Why do you call yoursself Jever98? Do you like the beer or are you originally from there?

Don't even really like the beer :smile: and I'm from Munich.
One evening, I needed a username, and had a bottle of Jever in front of me.
And since I wanted to keep as few user names as poss... it stuck
...may be I should call myself Ausgustiner98 :wink:
