So, I brought this new kid out on my boat the other day. He started riding last summer behind a 16 foot flat boat. This was his second time on a boat that put out a wake and had a tower. He was getting a consistant 7 feet of air on his heelside and about 5 on his ts and he could do huge hs 180s. I told him to go for a backroll. His first time ever going for any type of invert, lands it his 6th attempt. I was very impressed, I just told him to throw his hips straight up off the wake and he did it. He asked what he could try next, so I shrugged my shoulders and said 'a raley?'. I was only kidding. He asked what a raley was and I explained to him what it was and how to do one. First attempt he does a krypt and slides out. Second attempt he sticks it. I have never seen someone land tricks like this without any experience on a trampoline or any knowledge of what any of the tricks are.
