Need some help, here are a couple of the few I have on video, out of prolly 20 attempts. I can't seem to grasp the concept, the handle seems to be under my board when I come around. Do I need more height, faster rotation etc... Sorry for the poor vid quality! <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.wakepics.com/img/21533" target="_blank">http://www.wakepics.com/img/21533</a>

you just need to edge harder at the wake - think progressive - and be on your hardest edge as you're riding up the wake. You're not getting any pop and that makes the trick hard to rotate and make it all the wake around.

i think the reason you arent sucessful is because you are releasing you rear hand to early. i the first video i think i saw you actually take off your front hand momentarily. you edge looks good to me. i wouldnt change that. i would hold on with both hands until just before you land (3/4 through the rotation you can release). this will cause you to rotate faster and get a bit more pop. everything else looks good and will take care of itself if you hold on a little longer. good luck, youre almost there
