Ok, i was watching the vid( http://youtu.be/nPh0-ll3LQs ) of my 4th time wakeboarding if you watch the unimpressive vid please dont expect much. Trying to find errors and such in my riding.

I am goofy footed, on the snowboard as well, over the years on my snowboard i've gotten a little more confident riding switch but still suck real bad.

Now back to wake boarding I can only approach the wake and jump/etc if I am on the left side. I cross back over the wake to attempt another jump. How or what have others done to gain confidence riding switch? Are regular riders just natural at it? bindings setup different? I dont know if I have some mental block or what but I feel unskilled/sloppy when I try to ride switch. Im pretty sure if I tried switch on the wakeboard I wouldn't need to rehydrate for the rest of the day....

Ride a snowboard switch all winter and you will have No problems riding switch the following summer on the wakeboard!
