You have to over rotate the tail into your air, just like heelside. 1. Shovel board up to perpendicular your travel. 2. Bed knees WAY up, curl toes way up. 3. Keep pushing tail into it to keep your rotation in line. 4. Add the grab for stabilidad.

Jumping straight ahead and up= leaving your board inside and behind. Bring that tail along for the ride; pull your back shoulder and tail into it and face your air.
