I will have a spin pretty much dialed w2w with little line tension, so I want to take it bigger and into the flats. Thus I load the line harder and end up pitching over the nose on landing. I am always on axis, just over the nose, what gives? I have seen guys like Lyman, Greenwood, Harris, Etc. take these tricks big and into the flats, what am I doing that results in my landing over the nose? Is it just adding more weight to my back foot on the cut in? <BR> <BR>Thanks.

Make sure you are still taking off of your back foot a bit like you should on a regular wake to wake spin. Also, a grab helps because you will time it better.

Thanks, I will try to really focus on coming off my back foot more. I would say its not so much timing since the rotation is right on, I usually dont over-rotate, just land with all my weight on my lead foot.

When I say timing, I mean spinning to early off the wake. That makes you land on your front foot also.

Ahhh, alright. I am pretty positive that wouldnt be the case on the BS 180s since I dont even start that rotation until at the peak coming down. Maybe on the 3's and 5's tho. <BR> <BR>Thanks again.
