I am initiating jumps fine, gliding, redirecting....... but landing is an issue. I am landing downwind and trying to land tail first, but sometimes partially planing on the foil and most times just splashing down. Any tips would be appreciated :D

I find it is better to not land tail first. Fly the foil back into the water at zero angle of attack and then apply rear foot pressure as needed to stop the board from hitting the water.

Prince - all agreed. Landing flat and with a kite pulling forward at max. Timing!
For example:
