You need to let go with your back hand earlier and square your shoulders up to the wake. You also need to hang on with your front hand, you let go almost immediately after hitting the wake. Then look straight back with your head, you are leaving your chin tucked to your chest the whole time. Keep working it.

Great job on wanting progress your riding, I think your fist crack at it ends like most. Keep at it, I landed my first one behind a 23 Gulfstream without a tower.

Your edge looks like it could use a little work. Try and do some w2w jumps and some jumps into the flats before giving the tantrum a go. Try not to skip the basics, if you have trouble being inverted find a trampoline and start do flips. Good luck hope you stick it!

I just started landing mine, and I was really trying too hard for the trip-flip edge. When you get into the trough, drop your read hand and get your shoulders parallel with the wake. Resist the urge to throw it as long as possible. This is still the toughest part for me, I couldn't get it down consistant yet by the end of the season...
