Very close. Bumped the crest of the 2nd wake... straighten your legs some more by the time you reach the top of your heelside wake and you'll soar over it. Good luck!

its kinda annoying when you case the wake, just a couple more inches and it will turn into a smooth landing

I think you cased it but it was close. Only you can be the judge of that, depending on how the landing feels. If it's a smooth landing then that's all that I would care about.

Admittedly I feel like if i kept my tip down i would of made it because i skipped off the crest of the lower part of the wake. For me this is big because I pretty much started wakeboarding this summer from basically no experience. Gunna go for 360's on the next outing, landed a few 1-wake 180s so we'll see.

Do yourself a favor, get your technique down on real wake to wakes every time, toeside wake to wake, switch jumps and 180s wake to wake before trying 360s. You still flatten off a lot and your w2w needs work. Keep at it, you're close!

I agree with this. If you come down with your center of gravity past the crest, then you will smoothly slide down the second wake. In my opinion, that counts even though in videos you may be able to clearly see the back of the board hitting inside the wake.

It's hard to tell from this video, but it does look like there is some significant shock/impact which would indicate the center of gravity was not far enough forward to result in a smooth landing. So judging solely by the video my guess/opinion would be that I probably wouldn't count it, but if it felt smooth to you then count it and don't listen to anyone else.

Yeah bro I'm rushing the progression through September though! Fs 180s are down since I've gotten more board control switch, and working it in to a 2 wake sounds sketchy because If I knuckle it I don't know if I can keep control. Plus my sister tore her acl yesterday which is getting me gunshy a bit :/ I also strained my calf or something but should be good by this weekend.

a "legit" toeside should be of higher importance in your progression than working on other tricks.

So quick question... This saturday.. Should I work at all on my hs fs 360s or just go for a more legit hs wake to wake then go ts wake to wake?

You should work on getting some toe/heel side pop before anything else.

If you are getting hurt trying the tricks you are doing now, WHY would you want to try something harder. If you can't ride switch comfortably and jump toeside, you should back up get your technique right, then progress.

Trust me, unless your getting lessons, my experience is that it take at least a year or two just to learn how to crash. I know this sounds funny, but you do learn how to crash easier.

Just my $.02

I agree. This is the best advice I have seen on this forum in years. You are never going to progress if you are getting banged up on crashes.
