I attempted a whirly today and a few in the boat said it looked like I went tantrum to blind and crashed hard on left side of face (I'm goofy). It felt like I was twisting, but I definately got confused because I couldnt' figure out where I was within the trick.

I almost feel like I waited a few seconds late to throw my arm across, but just not sure. I also felt really layed out while twisting. Maybe I didn't square up enough. I usually throw my tantrums very big and way out into the flats. I think that might be hurting me on this trick.

Have you practiced it on the trampoline with a rope? That definitely helps.

If you haven't done a whirly on a tramp first it will almost definitely turn into a tanny to blind. This used to happen to me all the time. The first time i tried one on the boat after having down the whirly 5 on a trampoline i landed it first try.

The key also is the toeside stomp on your tantrum which will take you straight up. Once you get the straight up pop just do an uppercut with your front arm and commit to it. That will bring you around
