Also to help you out better more detail to what happens when you try to ride switch helps. i.e. when do you fall toe to heel, or heel to toe? Do you fall down the hill or up the hill? etc...
When I was in a class, I did ask to ride switch, but I'll notice the rest of those things.

Thanks everyone!
