I have tried a backroll probably 50 times and everytime I under rotate and end up digging the nose of the board in the water (yes some of these hurt like hell).

I paid 300.00 bucks for an instructor to help me out and he couldnt tell me what I was doing wrong, he sucked.

My question is this, do I really HUCK this flip? I usually just pop and kinda snap my head and shoulders to my back foot. Should I be HUCKing it like a flip on the tramp? I can front and back flip on the tramp with no problem but do I need to THROW this flip like a flip on the tramp?


Thanks.

For a backroll, all the instructions say that the head and shoulders should look and turn toward the front foot. I have tried the backroll about 5 times. The first time, I almost made it, but, I looked over the back foot and did not see the water coming. Had a major bad landing. After that I was gun-shy.

# 2 $300.00 You got ripped off.

We had a lesson - 3 sets with Brian Sasser out of Dallas and Edmond OK. $100.00 per man. He is a great teacher, we had alot of fun, and learned a bunch.

keeping the handle in tighter will make you rotate much faster. if you have video that would help. also, i will come out and help you for $300 if you want.

Maybe concentrate on your cut first?
Also, You said nothing about your front foot. Look up and over your front shoulder, and push your front foot that way as well.
