You need to square up to wake more. That will help pop you straight back so you don't get the half twist in the air, which is causing you to crash. Really concentrate on having that board flip straight over your head. You start turning it sideways mid air. I used to do the same thing. I started grabbing the trick which would force me to flip straight back with no twisting.

Blake, also have even pressure on both feet when edging in. It looks like you're back foot heavy which makes you throw the trick over your back shoulder. If you're squared up when you leave the wake, like Ryan M mentions above, that will help you not twist in the air and land square on the board.

Hope this helps.

Yes indy. Bring the board to your hand, not your hand to the board, if that makes sense. And don't rush it.
