What up... So I went out last Thurs and decided im going to learn a backroll. I cut out and edged in prgressively and threw my feet over my head and damn near landed it, boat swings around me and my boy says.. nice tantrum attempt.

So i ask what is a backroll than... he says look over your lead shoulder and yadda yadda... needless to say on my 3rd try i nailed.. and clean to.

So I go out Sat. and ride all day and nailed 4 of 5 backrolls... so im pretty juiced and official say i have this trick bagged.

I tell some of my boys im nailing backrolls now, and of course to thier skepticism they call me out.

So we head out to the dirty D on Mon. and sure enough i try about 10 times and just abused myself and didnt land any of them... ok i though im just tired, and its a bit windy.

We go back out Wed. and sure enough .... same thing 0 of 8 attempts, i riding same speed and length (23mph 80ft.)as when i landed, same boat same everything.

Why am i all the sudden not able to bust it now? Am i up in my head? pissed off wakegods with my cockiness? Should i focus on learning a new trick and try to come back at a later time? Help please !?
