I'm sure this has been asked so many times, so I apologize... <BR> <BR>I havent been boarding long and have been having a lot of trouble getting heelside back rolls down. Sometimes I can almost get all the way around, and sometimes I cant get very far around at all. This is what i have been trying to do. <BR> <BR>-Build a good progressive edge into the wake <BR>-At the wake, bring the handle out to my left and away from the boat. <BR>-I try and look in the direction of the handle to help my body follow. <BR> <BR>Are there any other tips you guys have?

You should be bringing the handle close to your midsection, and looking up and over your front shoulder.

I'm learning them too. Here's a good read from a post I received a few days back... <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3184/71083.html?1056126690" target="_blank">http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3184/71083.html?1056126690</a> <BR> <BR>I'm headed out today to give it a shot. I'll let you know if I experience anything noteworthy in landing my first few (or should I say... crashing my first few). <BR> <BR>
