Tried toeside front rolls for the first time today and I can't figure out how to generate the rotation. I am coming into the wake with some speed, flattening out and pushing off of the wake with some decent pop, but then I really struggle to generate the forward rotation. I'm trying to bring my head and shoulders forward as I would on a trampoline to initiate a front flip, but I'm flipping really slowly and landing short of the full rotation in spite of the fact that I'm getting significantly more air than I do for my normal toeside w2w jumps. So, is there something else I need to do to better initiate the rotation? I haven't had this issue for the other 2 inverts I've tried (Tantrum and Backroll). For those, the issue has been getting enough height (i.e. not throwing the trick too early), but the rotation part seems to come easily. Maybe I'm trying to throw this one too late? BTW, I have no issue doing front flips off a diving board or trampoline.
