So this weekend the weather in MN was epic. We rode hard all weekend and had, "NEW TRICK DAY" on sunday. I started working the wrapped TS BS spins pretty hard and was having a blast. I can already spin TS BS 180 and 360 with a handle pass but wanted to add some steeze with the extra long grab from the wrap. I had a few break thoughs I hope to get them on film soon (RYAN TAYLOR THIS IS YOU QUE what are you doing all day tomorrow?). So I started with TS BS Japan 180s crazy fun, got them on lock. I moved to TS Nose BS 360s and got those on lock. <BR> <BR>Here where I am in need of some tips if any ones got them, I started to try and spin wrapped TS BS 540. They are killing me, seriously I cannot even turn my head today. I just dont get it, ever single time I tried I got the rotation and the 2nd handle pass but would get a bit pitched forward and hook my TS edge and get totally Scorpioned to death. I tried like 10 of them before I had to hang it up for the day. I am trying to convince myself to not be scared of them. <BR> <BR>I know someone out there is trying these, anyone got any tips at all. All I was getting from the boat is, "Dude Lean back more." Not very helpful at all. I have a feeling that I may have been spinning early but I seem totally on axis until the last 180, I even tried to put 2 of them down wrapped up w/o passing and it was even worse. <BR> <BR>HELP!

My buddy (where you at Alf?) has been trying lately to get everybody on the wrapped TS BS spinning bandwagon! He was able to learn the 1 and 3 relatively quickly and said they are a ton of fun. I guess I need to go find a wrap handle so I can get in on the action!

Eubanks, <BR> <BR>Honestly it is the funnest thing that I have learned on a wakeboard in a few years, on 180s you can grab and tweak the hell out of it!

Andy, I'm with you on the wrapped TS BS 180-360. As long as I cruise in and pop nice and easy it is no problem. When I load it up to go big or for the 540 it goes hay-wire. I just can't hit the wake on edge w/o piking. I'm closer on the handle pass 5 (and I am not close on those I just haven't been killed on it yet). <BR> <BR>No answers--just sympathy.

stoked to see your video. i always get stuck on 5's. 180's and 3's are way easier. still super hard to pop.

today i had the pleasure of watching scotty313 nail a wrapped ts bs 3 behind my boat. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0> maybe he will see this and chime in.

Rileys infinate words of wisdom!!! But remember nintzel it doesn't count if it ain't grabbed. Hahahaha

andy_nintzel 09-22-2009 7:58 AM

JR <BR> <BR>HAHAHAHA that's funny I tried to grab the first few, I am all about learning the grab while learning the trick, but this one is killing ME!!!! I am going to try a bunch more tonight if this rain in MN holds off.

I can do indie grab backside 3's. Haven't tried 5's and honestly don't really have a desire to! <BR> <BR>I've had a couple of pretty bad falls over rotating but damn it's a nice feeling trick.

Try and concentrate on more straight up pop. It gives you a little more time and a little less pull. I find that when think 5 I spin early and have to much line tension. Grab nose too, it looks sick and and the handle will be there as you come around for the pass.

romes 09-22-2009 11:37 AM

all of the spins i learned i learned by grabbing them. i struggled and struggled and struggled until i started trying to grab them. as my grabs got more solid i got closer and closer to landing them. <BR> <BR>Joel D does the biggest ts bs wrapped spins i've ever seen...been doin them for years... <BR> <BR>videos coming soon... <BR> <BR>(Message edited by romes on September 22, 2009)
