Hips closer to the handle/shoulders back; lean more against the rope. Hold the handle with 2 hands when edging toeside. Zoom out. Possibly get a bigger board (hard to tell from the vid but board looked small. Maybe)
its kindda hard to keep a good stance cause im not balance good and the more i lean back the more loose the board feels but im sure i will get it. im 5'-8" 190lbs and my board is a hyperlite universal series vero 143. someone on here said its a good board for me...i was thinking it was lil small for me???

You just need to ride to get the balance down. I agree on the rope/shoulders comment. You're hunched over too much. Work on that and ride as much as you can. And work on riding switch now while you're still learning. Will make switch stuff a lot easier when you get better and are ready to progress. _________________
