Hey guys, I started trying Heel 5's today. First, I would go wake to wake with solid pop like my 3's and get around, but not really enough to ride away clean. I would slide out or catch an edge. Then I started trying them off the double-up which booted me plenty but I had a rough time stickin it cause I never do anything landing switch off the dub. video to come later tonight

Video would help, but two things that helped me a lot were
a.) Getting HS FS 360s down landing with both hands on the handle
b.) Think of doing a HS 180 first, getting over your toes, then finish the spin. It sounds weird but every time I do this, I get over my toes no problem on the landing (I normally slid out when I fell on these) It makes you wait longer to spin and gets your body over your toes through the whole spin so you land over your toes. You dont actually do a jerky spi, its just a mental thing, it looks normal.

I try to spin farther then five. This will make you land on your toes. If you land with the board facing the boat you will land flat as Adam says and fall on your butt.
