First HS Frontflip Attempt (Epic Fail)
 
So I was pretty confident going in but it didn't turn out that good.

Never going to land it if you dont give it a try... Props for getting out and doing it. Do you have a trampoline to practice on? I have been working on this trick and have found that its best to get the pop then bring my front knee up and pin my ear to my lead shoulder. I have a friend that does these with a nose grab using his back hand and they look insane!

I don't have a tramp anymore so I might have to rely on some feedback. I think the main problem was that I let the handle get away from me and it just pulled me into whatever that was. I think I dipped my head for a roll too instead of just doing the ear to shoulder move. I've seen them done with grabs and they look sick so hopefully I can figure it out, last person to try this on our boat broke his foot...

Looks more like a helicopter to me :D

I ended last season trying these, but I'm always landing on my butt!

Props for the effort.. I have no useful advice except to try to come back from being upside down. I have a whole lot of footage of me landing on my ass trying backrolls. Stupid board just doesn't want to stick.

For a crash, that was a very awesome crash. It was like a upside down s-bend.

If you go to 1:40 you'll see my first and only attempts behind the board. Have done them at the cable on ramps.

Wow you were super close, looked like a few attempts from making it. Your first try looked a whole lot better than mine...

fly135 06-17-2013 6:01 AM

Cas I compared at your video against mine and the only thing I can see is that it looks like you let your hands get too far away from your body like a raley, and that stalled out your flip.

Corey, I was 50 at the time that was shot. Only cable now, haven't been behind the boat in a couple years. But I think I can still do all that and maybe better after a few sets to get the feel of the wake back.

John, always great seeing you at Odub!

John, I'm seriously depressed after watching your clip ... reminds me of the 'over 50' thread a while back ... I still have a few years to go but I don't think that I'm going to learn much of anything anymore :banghead:

You're the man!

Thanks Shaun and Nicolas!

Greeko 06-19-2013 11:45 AM
