when i do a wake jump my board shifts up in a abnormal position. This probably happens 3/5 times. IT effects me when i attempt 360's.. what do i need to do to stop this? <BR><a href="http://tinypic.com" target="_blank"><img></a>

Seriously though, it sounds like you're not weighting your feet evenly when you pop. If you leave the top of the wake tail heavy, the board tends to skyrocket like you're describing. Concentrate on pushing evenly with both feet as you leave the top of the wake <b>especially when going for 3s</b>. Concentrate on the pop, if the jump is good, <b>then</b> initiate the spin by pulling on the handle. I think this should help, good luck! <BR> <BR>-Steve <BR> <BR>BTW your pic didnt work...

Hold the handle with both hands through the jump. Approach the wake in a seated position with the handle in low and close to your hips. It looks like your handle position is all screwed up, so I bet this will help tremendously, along with weighting your feet more evenly. <BR> <BR>-Steve

^^follow that advise, your handle position is about the most important aspect to good riding. Chin level is rarely a good level. Since your already up there, GRAB that stuff too.
