+1 on on the ski drills... proper stance.. and crossing only water starts to break under your bindings and rope is tight... Tail riding is an indication of wrong stance... Working the 12 drills especially stance and pull out will improve your confidence... it will make your skiing safer as well.

RFF skiers, right palm facing down, left palm facing up on the handle and vice versa for LFF, right palm facing up, and left palm facing down...this allows for a better power position. Here's a video link with Thomas Moore explaining it...mac

Any tips on what to concentrate on to make sure I don't start zig zagging all over the place when pulling up? If my left leg is forward, rope on the right side??? Correct?
How's your progress young lady....?
