Could somebody please give me help on the correct steps to take when going for a toeside front roll. I have searched through previous posts and cannot seem to find any decent threads on the proper steps to taking when trying it. I have been trying these now for 6 weeks, I finally landed one last thursday (very sketchy), but on friday night I didn't seem to be able to get it at all. My problem is I am not consistent on getting the correct pop, sometimes I hit it, but most of the time I throw it too early and get no height with it, I have no problem with the handle positioning or the rotation, I just want to get that pop every time instead of a hit and a miss. It is starting to bug me but I don't give up easily. Any help appreciated. <BR> <BR>Thanks guys <BR> <BR>(Message edited by saxosham on August 01, 2004)

1. Take a nice TS cut at the wake. <BR>2. Stand tall at the wake (IMPORTANT) as if you were going to jump off a diving board into a pool. <BR>3. Pick a spot directly across the wake, a tree, a hottie, a boat, shorline, whatever. <BR>4. Be patient, get your pop and initiate your flip. You WON'T overrotate it. Atleast I'd be surprised if you do so don't worry about that. <BR>5. Let go with your back hand to avoid a crow. <BR>Stay tucked a tad longer than you think you need to (ie on the trampoline) because you want to land on your toes and continue to edge away from the boat. <BR>6. Raise your hands in victory and pump them in the air a few times. You've done it. <BR> <BR>Good luck.

Thanks for the feedback. <BR>I landed another one tonight, they have both been very sketchy because I have slipped out on them, but they still count. Yeah I have never yet overrotated one, I find it hard to land on a toeside edge and I nearly always seem to land on my heels and slide out.
