Hey guys, I have been trying these a bunch this summer but just cant seem to get it consistent. So far I have only landed one this summer, and it was on my second try, other than that I come really, really close on all my attempts. I think my main problem on these is just popping the handle due to line tension. I get great pop whenever I try it, I just cant seem to get it.
Here is basically what i do when i try this trick: I take about a 20 ft cut from the wake, drift and let the line tighten, take a seated cut back at the wake, then about 4 ft before I reach the wake I let my body come over the board, then I hit the wake and extend my legs while letting go with my back hand, then wait a second to feel the pop and flip straight back, and look for my landing. That's it.
As far as I can remember on the one I landed earlier in the summer, I think I might have had the handle close to my body before I left the wake, which I hear might help with tension.
Its not even funny how long Ive been trying these, so I would really appreciate it if you guys could help me to finally get this thing in the bag, that way I can actually move on to other tricks.
