I'm no expert on the subject. I've only landed one. But I've tried 2350923752340972345097 of them. I just had the inconvience of a boat wake that provided little air and not enuff sac to hold onto the rope. Getting better, but screwed my knee up the day after I landed my first one. I've found out watchin a video over and over and getting the trick in your head real good helps. PIcture yourself doing it. Also, think of doing a reverse cartwheel in the air, which is kinda what it is. What I've read is...keep your elbows in and look to your trailin shoulder. The backflip you speak of is a tantrum. If all else fails, my friend snake has developed 3 steps to wakeboaring effectively: <BR> <BR>1. Grab Handle <BR>2. Bite lip. <BR>3. Give hell. <BR> <BR>Hope that helps some. I'm sure someone will come along and tell you that I'm all wrong. but hell..I tried. Good luck man, its a damn good feeling when you finally land one.
