Nose press help. Maybe my setup?

I can do them on boxes, but when it comes to round objects, no way.

It seems everytime I try to go into a nose press, my nose hits first way to hard, and my board starts to spin.

Or it will feel like I'm backfoot heavy, and before I even make it to the rail, I drift off to the side.

Any help?

Nose presses are very difficult on round bars. You need to be very gentle when ollieing onto the feature. Pop as little as possible. When you ollie you want your nose to gently press against the rail, lift your back leg and have your body/shoulder parallel to the rail. If you ollie to high your tail will just hit the rail and it will not be a proper nose press.
