Any tips, I'm riding with no tower and an unweighted wake, I'm using most of my time getting enough air and ending up not having enough time to land it.

Is this your first grab? I would try something easier if it is like an indy grab. Just keep the rope in tight and make sure you bring your knees up to grab...not just bend over at the waist. Coming in with a knees bent edge with help you pop up a little more instead of going out as much. Just focus on your pop FIRST and then worry about grabbing he board. Keeping the handle in tight to your hips will make it much, much easier.

Pop. Bring the board up. Grab it. Spot your landing. Now do it toeside.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>

Thanks for the tips, this is my frist grab, I'll let you guys know how it go this weekend if you want.

a method is a very difficult grab, most pros don't even do it right. sounds like you need to try an indy or stale. rear hand grabs are much easier.

Yea...No I'm gettin this HS method...OK

probably gonna get yourself a melan or nosenchaly grab no matter what you call it unless you shifty and bone out your back leg, which would be amazing for anyone to do as a first grab. a method is a commonly mislabeled trick. either way, good luck. <BR> <BR>here is a trick tip on it, showing a proper method: <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/Tricklist/TrickTip003.asp" target="_blank">http://www.wakeworld.com/Tricklist/TrickTip003.asp</a>

if you can't reach down and grab it indy, you won't be getting a method. no one is saying you can't do it, but you should prob be trying shifties and grabs with both hands before trying methods.

I san hit an indy <BR> <BR> <BR>BCH, MY methods are almost to that point, My origional question is tips on getting higher i'm not able to pull the board quiet that far around, but close.

Method is a tough grab/move. I can poke indys, tails, stalefish, and half decent melans, but I can't quite get the feel of the method down. When I do them it looks more like I'm trying some sort of sissy raley <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0>
