Wakeboard Help!!!!
hey guys so right now I'm riding a 2011 hyperlite primier 135 wakeboard and I love it but it's a little to big for me and I need a smaller one. so I was wondering if you guys had any idea I need a board that's poppy but forgiving and can edge hard. I was thinking a LF witness or harley. or a ronix parks or one. Also I need some 360 help I can get the rotation but the handle keeps slipping out of my hand, any ideas?

Height? Weight?

sorry forgot to put this I'm 5"3" 105 pounds but I've been working out and have gained 5 pounds in 2 weeks and plan to continue to gain weight and height. I saw thinking 132 or 133 or something

Handle pass advice
As far as handle pass advice. I would suggest tieing a rope to a tree, pole... whatever & practice handle passes on a trampoline if you have one. Although I don't know how helpful I am seeing as how I have the same problem. OR I would get a copy of 'Detention 2012' Shaun Murray is an excellent teacher & has plenty of humor to keep you interested. Plus Murray is just a boss.

Here is a drill my son has been doing.

There are only 2 reasons why the handle gets pulled out of your hand and they are related. Your grip strength is weak and/or you are getting too much slack in the line at landing. The drill LynrdSkynrd suggested is good, but I would suggest some grip/forearm strengthening exercises. Lack of strength can be overcome with good technique that prevents the line slackening or deep edge set on landing. BTW, the somewhat shorter board will not help solve this problem, but it would help with other issues related to your size.
