just recently put up a post on wantin sum tips for a tantrum. i had landed a couple w/o the rope so today i got my balls up to go for it. i slowed down to bout 20...cut in hard popped and flipped. landed just on the other side of the wake...caught an edge...fell and my mouth hit my knee and my teeth cut all the way thru my lip. so now i have four stiches in my lip and two teeth marks on my knee becuz i wanted this tantrum so bad. but hey they'll b gone in a week and im gonna b back out as soon as i can. wakeboardin kicks ass and thanx for all da info even though it didnt go so well.

Well thanks Johnathan you have sucsesfully scared the crap out of me about trying a tantrum(jj). I'm going to try one once I get my backroll. I hope that never happens to me.Good Luck.

damn man... I just started sticking them recently and have been surprised at how much the falls didnt hurt. BUT.... My boy was so stoked when I landed it he decided to try. I'm not sure how but he managed to smash his face with the toeside and wound up breaking his nose!! <BR><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font><font color="ff0000">•</font> happens keep riding!

1. Cut out wide. <BR>2. Start your cut slow and build some speed. <BR>3. Cut hard at the wake. <BR>4. At the last second, switch your edge from heelside to toeside and look towards where you came from. <BR>5. Put a bit of weight on your back foot and look up and back. (you don't necessarily have to throw your head back) <BR>6. When you come around, spot your landing. <BR>7. Absorb the landing by bending your knees. <BR>8. Once you land, continue cutting away from the boat. <BR> <BR>Refer to this video. <BR><a href="http://www.wakepics.com/view_single.php?medid=2338" target=_top>http://www.wakepics.com/view_single.php?medid=2338</a> <BR> <BR>Good luck.

What were you trying to do at the end and why on earth would you hang on to the handle that long? I'm not trying to critisize, cause god knows I cant do anything close to it, but I am curiouse.

I was just doing a ts jump w/ a grab, slid out and tried to hang on to try to get back up. I know, I'm stupid! A couple of years ago, I wouldn't have been able to do that, due to my shoulder always popping out. Thank God it's healed!

i wasnt trying to do n e thing at the end...i just landed really off balance the nose of my board caught the water. i usually have too much weight on my back foot cuz my boards finless so i tried to even out my wake more but obviously it didnt work. i didnt hang on to the rope no time. as soon i started to fly forward i let go. it was the speed at which i fell that made my knee hit my chin.

i meant even out my weight...not wake lol...my fault
