jordan, <BR> <BR>how do you "ride away" without a rope? j/k <BR>1. pop <BR>1.5 pull handle into your waist (step you might be missing;) <BR>2. turn head away from boat <BR>3. handle pass (roll arm/wrist behind back) <BR>4. spot landing <BR>5. ride away <BR> <BR>good luck and you dont need huge air for this trick - good news for you since you will need to be concentrating on a 3 rather than getting huge air.

Do you have any video tape of you trying the trick? My buddy thought he was reaching for the rope and he spun just perfect and always landed on his feet. Once we watched the video we could plainly see that he never reached for the rope - he brought it to the small of his back but never reached for it. <BR> <BR>If you can get video it should really help you figure out what you're doing wrong - probably something simple. <BR>

hey, i was doing the same thing for the better part of a year until i started my approach to the wave with a bend in both elbows and the rope in a little bit (watch the way chad sharpe rides). this took a lot of the tension off the rope. when you are in the air make a conscious effort to put the handle in your other hand. reach back around, turn the handle over and actually put the handle in your other hand. you'll know it the first time you do it. <BR> <BR>have fun <BR>-e
