well for starters make sure you put it on your right arm and go out and ride your skis

it will feel a bit weird at first

to help with your landings make the arm hole big
as you get use to it   make the hole smaller

Refer to the lower post about rope load.  RG told me to do the same thing to get used to how a sling is supposed to feel.

My biggest problem isn't using the sling cutting to the ramp, but its the riding away without getting pulled over.

I've been told its a combination of not landing over my toes enough, and not getting free enough of the boat.  I'm only a 70'-75' right now.

Too bad there's no drills for practicing landing.
been there

Not to scare you, but have/learn good fundamentals & make sure you are  letting go only w/your LH. If you have ever had the tendency to let go with your right(i.e show ski background) be cautious & break that bad habit.
As a rule of thumb, as you glide towards a landing let your left hand off & hold your left palm horizontally at your hip level to the left side of your body, It;ll square your body & prepare you to land.
