I worked on them off and on for 2 days, as most people had told me prior its not a hard trick to do, it will do it for you if you do everything correctly. It's 100000% commitment you can't half step it. I learned the basic feel on a wakeskate whether right or wrong it prepared me for what was instore. I tried 2 with my wakeboard and FAILED lol, I went out the back on the first and the second I didnt get the board back under me all the way and cuaght my edge. Neither falls hurt to bad , Looking at the boat is key, both attempts I looked away and paid the price. Good luck

I tried learning a Raley by first practicing on a wakeskate. This led to the 2 biggest crashes of my life! Watch: Huge Raley Crash

imo a better way to learn raleys, if you are lucky enough to have new hyperlite system bindings, is to basically use your wakeboard like a wakeskate (but you will still get the same pop and control of your wakeboard). you can get up and do a couple big wake jumps with your bindings strapped down then when you are ready cut out toeside just about as far as possible. when you get out there unstrap your bindings from your boots and begin your long steady progressive edge(if you try to cut super hard at the beginning you will automatically slip out on ur butt). when you get to the wake dont let off the edge at all. you steadily built your edge and you cant throw all that work away at the last second. stand tall and slightly leaning away on the rope. when you get your pop you should naturally let your hips and legs out behind you and then at the peak of your jump you should begin to pull(dont yank) the handle to your hips. the board will have fallen off a long time ago so you will not need to pull very hard to get your feet under you. if you can get this consistent just leave out the part where you unstrap your bindings and ride it away. this method will greatly reduce the number of hard crashes you will take.

Tried it a couple times now. I get decent air, and extension, but can't get back on my feet... I end up every time plunging directly on my face!!

System 2.0 with a kicker is the BEST way to learn these. Took about 2 tries to get the beginnings dialed in, but then you're set!!

Having the kicker made the takeoff much easier, for me at least. For some reason, I don't get as intimidated off the kicker as I do off the wake.
