Default Problem with Heli-tack

Hi,

I know this is a basic one, but I'm still having troubles with it.
On the movie below the guy crosses the windline and gets pushed downwind on a new tack, then he rotates the sail.

I get to the wind line like just when doing a tack, but then I never cross it. I try to tip the rig forward, but I get pushed back to an old tack. I try to force the rig rotation, but I fall into my back every time.
Any idea what do I do wrong?
