I've been almost landing a tantrum every time I go for it, but it seems to be killing my left arm and left knee. It literally feels like I'm about to tear something. Any reason for this?

Hey man, I just starting landing tantrums this summer and I experienced this same thing, only for me it was the opposite arm/leg cause I ride goofy. When I first started trying them I read about all diff ways to hit the wake (front foot only, back foot only, etc...) when I just used both feet with even weight I started landing them consistently. You might be using your back foot to push off the wake more than your front, which may be causing you to land nose heavy. As soon as you see the water when your about to land, maybe try to get in a more seated position. Like I said I just started landing them consistently so that's about all I can say. If you got a video I might able to help you more. Good luck!

Get a video up and ill try and help, common issues are not dropping back hand soon enough and not squaring up at wake (which can be caused by not dropping the handle soon enough). also look into this website, www.learnwake.com best 10 bucks I have ever spent

Sounds like you are going out the back. It will make for uneven landings with a lot of yank. Try looking straight over the top.
