I would love to hear any advice one has to offer regarding what they do to get good clean TOESIDE air. I'm known for having very good healside technique but my toeside sucks!

I'm looking for everything from good technique to "mindsets" that people have.

I appreciate your help fellow wakeboarders

I've heard that if you edge away from the wake Toeside with only your backhand on the handle and your front hand tucked against your body is the best position for a toeside W2W jump. Hips should be forward, Chest up, and make sure to edge all the way through the wake and stand tall at the top. I found with lots of people jumping for the first time that they let off their edge too early to pop so they end up falling backwards because they start to lean back. Just remember hips forward, chest up edge all the way to the top and stand tall. If you find your self casing the wake, edge harder! Razz Good luck.

Don't forget this. My toeside jumps are excellent and it's all due to proper form. Make sure you ride all the way up the wake and don't worry too much at first about 'pushing' against the wake (just don't absorb the pop). Stand a bit taller and let the wake do the work. If you're doing it right you'll feel the kick without having the feeling like you've done a lot.

just started nailing the TS W2W this season - Ronix14 has some good advice - I would add - look over to where you want to land - and keep the twisted position- it'll happen
