I can't figure out why I can't stay in the wrapped/blind position. Cuffed (with 2 hands behind back) is real easy for me, even cutting out and back. I can get in the blind position and once the rope tension hits I spin back around. <BR> <BR>Is there a trick to this? I know to look backwards (away from the boat) and weight the tail of the board, but I can seem to hold it. Also I ride most boards finless. Is it easier with fins or bigger fins? <BR> <BR>I've seen in videos that some people can ride blind and others snap around like me. Just wondering why. <BR> <BR>Are there any drills to help me with learning this?

I'm still learning with you. I gave up for a while (tired of getting pulled around on my back) but will probably give this some more play now that the water temp is dropping here in MN. <BR> <BR>Sure am jealous of you guys out West this time of year!

Seth, If you figure it out let me know. Although I might before you; me being in Arizona. We ride all year here. Nothing but board shorts from Apr-Nov and then I have a drysuit for Dec-Mar.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>
