Ok I've been struggling with my HS 5....I have landed a couple but they weren't smooth. Anyone got any tips for me? Here is a link to the vid. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.blackwaterrydas.com/jeff5.htm" target="_blank">http://www.blackwaterrydas.com/jeff5.htm</a>

Your edge looks pretty good and your spin is under control. When I learned to do this trick consistently, I started to think about my landing position while I was backwards and totally disregarded the fact that I was going to be able to spot my landing at 360. Think about landing switch toeside (over your toes of course) throughout the spin and be confident about the rotation. <BR> <BR>Also, you'll have an easier time landing if you land on the downside of the wake. To do this, take a shorter approach with a little extra umph at the top of the wake. From that video it looks like you have landed the trick 20 times, so you should get it soon!
