i very much doubt the problem is occurring on take off, i think its much more likely that hes turning himself in the air. i could be wrong but theres no way to tell without video. riding on your heeledge to straight air is not a good way to practice good form. flat based is also dumb in my opinion. keep you shoulders straight and weight on the balls of your feet.

and fear isnt why i suggested stepping down jump size. it gives you less time to screw up in the air. get comfortable. and move up.

This confused me:
If you are goofy and your board is going counter-clockwise how are you hitting your rigth side 1st???
Your board is pointing left'ish and your body is pointing right'ish to allow you to hit your right cheek first???

as mentioned already its hard without a vid, but just go through a check list and correct anything that wrong.

Pick a drop in spot and drop into the kicker with no speed checks

Make sure your riding into the kicker with your body parrallel to the board (your standing sideways, not skiing )

Make sure your on a flat base and weight centred over the board, low centre of gravity...

Jobs a goodun

Aha. Nice catch. I'm landing more on my left cheek, or even dead center. Here's a better description.

My board is pointing leftish/back. So let's say the jump is a clock, with the downhill being 12 o'clock. my board is pointing at about 8 o'clock (so I guess more than 45 degrees).

My body is pretty much square with the board, but it rotates towards the downhill a bit. So I'm almost going head first, upside down into the landing. And my butt sticks out and hits on the left side (or center of the lower back) first.
