I cant get up heelside. I have to flip over to front side to get up as well. I think for me part of it is that I still have some weight to lose, I dont yet have the strength to get my weight over the board and get myself up. Is there a reason why I should not be getting up front side and working on getting up heelside? Just curious.
The only reason it was a problem in her case was that she couldn't ride toeside so while she could get up toeside, she would almost always fall while she tried to transition from toeside back to heelside so she could practice her falling leaf. If that isn't an issue for you at this point then it isn't absolutely necessary. Just keep working on it and trying different techniques that may be easier
