Default where to look when jibbing

So I'm starting to move to the advance park. And of course the most prevalent and major changes are the kickers.
I have been toying with this rail for the past 2 days and can not get a "lock".

Im curious as to where I should be looking during all stages.

approaching rail, looking at the rail
in air prior to landing, looking down at the rail
on rail, looking at the end of the rail
ride off into the sunset, the sunset!
?

Im also curious about the approach.
Currently I ride the kicker almost completely parallel to the rail, then when in the air do my 90 and try to land on the rail.
I think some of my problem is commitment, because Im not shifting enough weight onto the left side, so im constantly slipping to the right prior to "locking" on. Some times i just chicken out, tap the rail, and go back straight (however this has help to build confidence and kept me from any major falls).
