Im starting to get decent at jumping wake to wake but im finding that alot of the time the front of my board faces up toward the sky when i jump. This of course leads to crappy crashes and need to fix this problem. Am i not centering my weight properly or something? I can post a video eventually.

Video would help a lot, but it sounds like you have all your weight on your back foot. Ideally you want 50/50 weight distribution.

Sounds like Ps205Rider is on the right track. Usually you're either all back foot or you are bending the front knee a lot more than the back. Even balance should fix it.

Maybe make sure to have the handle at your front hip when leaving the wake as well

Yea was watching some of the videos again and it does look like a combo of those things. Just inconsistent gotta work on good habits I guess. Hopefully can ride this week and work on it. Cool
