sorry no vid. But I've been determined to do a raley so I've committed to try at least one every time I go out. I want to try more, but both times had the same result. No injury, thankfully, but both times I got kicked straight into a full rotation front flip. How do I fix it?

sounds to me like you not lookin straight ahead at boat....if you lookin down when you pop its gonna send your body into a front flip

yes, you need to make it a point to look at everyone watching you inside the boat. Think of it as everyone wants to see this trick, so you need to make sure you give them your full attention by looking at them back while doing the raley.

Hold on to that rope and fly!

soooo...I know without video it's hard to tell exactly what I'm doin, but do you approach a front flip the same way you approach a raley? I thought maybe I was throwing it too hard or something instead of just letting it "trip" behind me. I'll try to keep my eyes on the tower. Goin on boat vacation so I got 5 solid days to learn it...

I've found when I stand too tall during my cut into the wake, I do the same, take more of a seated position, same edge, then pop the same, standing tall at the wake and letting the board behind you.
