He is edging to hard into the wake...Have him go out about 10-15ft and instead of edging in hard, try more of a "drift". Allow the boat to pull you back into the wake with a mild edge. Hope that helps

Oh, I forgot to mention that he isn't starting the spin until he is at the peak of his jump.

Alan: Thanks for doing these - they are awesome. Going to be trying HS 360 & HS BR on this weekend. Look for some wicked falls and scattered body parts if you are on the warm side. I am thinking (hoping) reading thru these will help minimize both though.

remember to keep your shoulders back for all heel spins. It helps to keep you on axis

Alan: That's me - your brother is right down the street from me. We definitely need to ride sometime - I could use someone to critique my technique (or lack thereof). Got some guests up this weekend, so will probably stick to what I know and spare them the falls. I will shoot you an email with my contact info.

Thanks again for putting these together. I am almost there on 360. Get the spin every time - just got to get the dang handle. Going for it at full speed next - heck with this 16 mph thing!

Tie a weight to the end of an old handle and pass that to develop muscle memory

I've always had a mental block when it comes to spinning behind the boat but finally decided to conquer my fear. After reading through this thread and others, I proceeded to stomp it first try. Thanks WakeWorld!
