Help with frontside boardslide, need advice

I'm a goofy rider, got 50 50's and backside boardslides on lock.
I normally do ride on boxes, don't have the balls yet for streetstyle features.

So i wanna get the frontside boardslide down but i seem to be having 2 problems.
When i do this trick i can't get the board to a 90 degree angle to the box.
Don't know what i'm doing wrong on this one.



Another problem i have is that sometimes i fall on my face because i accidentally put some pressure on my toe edge.
Any tips for correcting these problems??

well what helps is practicing on flat. like tweaking your legs to get the board perpendicular.
also what helped me learn these and getting over the fear of going blind is doing FS board to switch.
so basically just spin BS on the rail

Get backside shifty's off small kickers on lock...

Then start on a wide flat box that you can ride straight onto, 50-50 it and about 1/4 of the way down the box turn the same way you did a for the backside shifty (front board position-I know its confusing) that way you'll get the feeling of sliding sideways going backwards and it'll let you turn the board a little more each time and work your way up to turning it a complete 90.

Once you get the board at turning at 90 each time you're ready jump on the box in that position. This is where it gets tricky because it's hard to get into that position coming straight onto the box from a flat base. You'll want to come from the side a little putting the box in front of you a little, hence the name-frontside boardslide. I like to make a little heelside set up turn to the outside of the box and come at slightly toeside from a small angle. Don't try and jump from your toes, stay more flat and pop up off both legs and do the shifty landing in the frontside position on the box. You'll be familiar with the feeling by now from learning them with the 50-50 on, and you'll stomp it no problem. Slide to the end of the box and ride away.

Some good advice dude. This is next on my to do list! I've been practicing bs boardslides but haven't tried these yet so i'll try your advice by slowly turning to a fs position from a 50-50. thanks!
