Can't frontboard

so there is this rail which I've been trying to frontboard but I simply can't. I can 50-50 very well, but every time I try to frontboard, I end up doing lopsided 50-50/feeble. I an trying to frontboard with counter rotation. another strange thing is I have trouble doing this even on boxes. plz help I am getting pretty pissed with myself!

i have the same exact problem so i can't give advice from experience but i do know some pros and buddies that are jib rats. what everyone agrees on is get get shifties in that direction on lock. if you ride regular, punch through your left armpit with your right hand. strap on your board at home and practice to get the muscle memory.

this is the best "how to" vid i've ever seen.

let me know how it goes and what works for you. i can use the help too.

Like the video says. Start on a flat box. 50-50 to shifty front board. This is exactly how I learned them. Soon enough you'll be jumping right into the front board position and coming out fakie. But I woulnd't take them to a rail until you can do all that on a box. You need to get comfortable getting the board all the way 90.
