i have been working on varial heels also..
i place me front foot where the convace of the nose starts and my back foot all the way back and kinda let me heel hang off the board. its really wierd to edge like this but it has helped with the flip of the trick fsure
I learned them I/O first, that's what I'd recommend. It gives you a feel for how the trick should be thrown, foot placement, ect.
I put my front foot about 3/4 of the way up the board, with just a bit of my toe hanging off. For I/O put on a mellow edge, pop the board in a big front shuv, and slide your foot off the front. Try a few straight heelflips first to get the feel for how your foot should be interacting with the board.
Here's a clip of one of the first flats ones that I did that made me smile.
