Couple thing... is your arm pointed with the board or your feet?

Which way do you drift? Left, Straight or to the right?

Make sure everything is pointed the direction you want the ball to travel. I drift 3 boards to the left.

Try pushing the ball to the left out of the stance and see if that will help you create a bigger loop in the backswing. Should be from the outside to the inside.

Are your feet staggeredl meaning your left feet is forward of the right foot in the stance?

Default Angle

Try stepping with your right foot sideways on your first step with right foot, that should open you up.

Yes, that is the same as I do, I dont know if I am explaining it to you very well, just turn your right foot sideways and step, if that makes sense.
