Im having trouble landing my ts front roll, I get plenty of air when im just going to jump the wake ts, but when i go to flip I land on the side of the board and my back. I edge with 2 hands on the handle and during the rotation I let go with my right hand. What am I doing wrong???

I don't know if you are getting enough air. Do a search on "Frontroll" and post pictures if you have them of you doing a ts jump.

Like Matt says, It sounds like you are throwing it too early. Wait for the top of the wake. <BR>B <BR>

Yeah I think I have been throwing it too early, because half of the time I jump out of my boots. Thanks guys!

Can you do scarecrows? Tantrums? It's the same edge as those, the "trip flip edge" basically where you edge in hard and get momentum &amp; then square off at the bottom &amp; then pop off the top. Hold on with both hands until you spot the water again and can begin slowing your rotation down. This will rotate you faster and allow you to land on your toes like you should.

Blake, two more things might help. 1- Do not open up until you see the water. Don't worry about over-rotation, it won't happen. Hopefully you'll just land on that toe edge and ride away. 2- Keep the handle "in your back pocket" behind your front hip. A lot of people let go with the back hand but still keep the handle in front of them.
