    Default switch help?

    hey y'all,ive been into freeride since about christmas,and seeing as now most of my sliding seems to leave me in a 180,ive been ending up switch a lot recently.ive been counteracting this by just 180 hippy jumps,but than theres the problem of having a maestro:its really arkward to ride backwards. i cant afford another board,so a symetrical twin tip's out of the question.so my question is,how can i learn to ride switch? any advice is very welcome

    You can learn to ride switch by practicing.

    There's no magical or special trick to learning to ride switch.
    You do it the same way you first started to learn how to skate in your current stance.
