So I've tried a couple tantrums on the wakeskate, and decided this morning that I was ready to try it on the board for the 1st time.

I was worried about coming up short and jamming my ankles because of that, so I took a pretty agressive cut in, let off about 5 feet out, and stood tall. From what my boat driver said, it looked fairly textbook, except that I ended up a little twisted on the landing, and basically fell on my butt.

I think what happened is that I started to pull the rope in with my lead hand (like habit on a normal wakejump) instead of leaving it extended, and this caused me to rotate a little.

No video since only 2 of us rode today, but can anyone offer any specifics on what needs to happen or what you did to land your first one? I'm thinking just try and keep my arm out more, but is there anything else?

Thanks.
