I told her i want to get better than I was before and she told me to just start hitting some small jumps on the trail first and move into 180s and 360s.

This sounds kinda screwy cause shouldnt I get decent at riding switch first?

I can ride switch on my toeside all day, but everytime i try to go heelside i end up on my ass, and I have an amazing bruise to show for it .

well getting better riding on switch is a must if you gonna be riding switch and turning. I dont think you need to be riding much switch if you just doing 180's and 360s apart from switch landing.
