I'm trying front bigs but my skate just gets hung up. Any suggestions?

toxis 01-14-2009 7:39 PM

vid? gets hung up how and when? What's the board doing? I'm DEFINITELY not the right person to answer this as I can't even do a shuv. haha But at least I can ask some questions to get more educated skaters to help you out.

wswb4lfe 01-14-2009 7:43 PM

No sorry no vid. When i pop the board it does like a 90 front shuv but then it just stops.

wakemitch 01-14-2009 11:40 PM

if it is going 90 its because you are throwing it while on edge. <BR>make sure you flatten off and then throw it. <BR> <BR> <BR>cut out <BR>flatten off <BR>hold the handle with only your back hand near your back hip <BR>push your back foot down into the water while pushing it out with your heel like a fs 180 but with a little more from your heel <BR>suck up your legs with your feet wide watching it spin <BR>catch it in a normal riding stance but with a bit more pressure on your toes so you dont slip out <BR>catch

Oh ok I see thank you I'll have to try it that way.just a question Mitch have you ever done a front big on the liquidforce sst?

wakemitch 01-15-2009 8:59 AM

yes. i rode the 42 and then the 40.5 last season. i loved fs bigs on that board because the flexy tails <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/68124/659667.jpg" alt="Upload">

Oh that's sick! The skate is asymetrical right?which side did your back foot siton to kick the big spin?I know that sounds dumb

wakemitch 01-15-2009 9:57 PM

thats one thing i hated about the sst. i cant stand asymmetrical. i would always make sure the tail was actually the tail. it felt a little different but its mainly in my head. <BR>now im on a symmetrical board and it is so much more consistant

dlwsrider 01-15-2009 10:10 PM

You could always try a zariel Mitch ;)

wakemitch 01-15-2009 10:40 PM

ive tried it and it wasnt for me. im off bilevels <BR>and i cant imagine riding something bigger then 40" now that im on the 38.65"

wswb4lfe 01-16-2009 11:04 AM

Mitch am i correct in saying the skinnier tail is better for big spins?

dlwsrider 01-16-2009 12:20 PM

What are you on now? <BR> <BR>(It comes in a 40" <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0>)

Figured. When I heard "Tiny Tiny board" I thought integ <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>How you likin' it? Always wanted to try an Integrity skate.

wakemitch 01-16-2009 1:49 PM

its amazing. the size is perfect. the stiffness of the bamboo core makes it react faster then any board, so no delay like a bilevel. also it snaps up and spins crazy fast and percise. i love everything about it. the edges are perfect as well, never hangs up, but tracks so great with no fins.

wswb4lfe 01-16-2009 2:19 PM

what is the website for integrity?

eviltweak 01-16-2009 8:17 PM

integrity-wake.com <BR> <BR>if you order from them pm dd on wakeskating.com he will answer all your questions in little or no time. i got my TNT for Christmas but i haven't gotten to ride it so aggravating.

wswb4lfe 02-01-2009 7:18 PM

What is the weight comparison the sst to the TNT?
