I'm working on something... and I know I'm doing it wrong. A friend that I ride with a lot says it looks to him like I'm trying a totally different trick most of the way through. Just for fun, I thought I'd post the beginning of the trick here to see what the general thoughts are.
Yeah, I guess it is pretty obvious... It's just a HS BR. Although, you'll see in this newest vid, I take it to revert (almost)... and (unintentionally).
My buddy says it looks more like I'm trying to raley or even s-bend because of the cut and because I get so laid out.
So my question... S-bend is always a backside spin right? So what would you call a raley to frontside 360? Just curious.
Now, back to work on the BR. I've been trying hard this early season to cut more progressively and I keep telling myself to get that handle in to my hip... but no matter what my brain says... my body seems to do what you see in this video.
The reason your roll attempts are going to revert is because your hitting that wake WAY WAY too perpendicular. That kind of angle into the wake virtually guarantees you a R2R rotation. Come in at far less of an angle and you'll get that "around a pipe" rotation.
Take a look at these videos, and notice the angle of their board when they hit the wake. they're about a 45 degree angle vs at a 90 degree (which you hit in your video), perpendicular, at the wake. That change in angle makes a HUGE difference when trying to land that backroll. Shorten your cut up a little but, use less angle but use a more progressive edge and you'll stomp that baby and won't have to worry about going to revert. Stomp that sucker and get us come footy!
i think ben has the hawkeye lol. your angle is to perpendicular to the wake and you are taking a raley cut instead of a progressive cut. slow down the cut keep the handle close to your lead hip and push all the way through the wake. remember rope close to you you spin faster let your arms out to slow rotation.
Ha! Nintzel... I thought you were just making a fat joke, until I did some research and saw the thread about Jason G and his friends coining the name rollephant.
Still... woulda been a pretty funny fat joke.
I actually used to do these back in the day but even more laid out with a raley edge into the wake. Started doing them because I mistakenly thought I was doing sbends. You can do 2 things, fix it into a proper roll or keep going and go for a true Hinterburger (reverse S-bend). I recommend the roll option since the hinterberger is an extremely hard trick to do correctly behind the boat, and also will probably knock you out lol
