hs backroll and 360 I learned on a trick ski first. It probably took me 3 days of 40 - 50 attempts per day to learn the hs backroll on my trick ski. (I was black and blue like crazy!) Once I took them to the wakeboard, it probably took 2 - 10 attempts to get them down.
Tantrum was a new type of flip for me (no real trick ski equivalent)... I spent 4 - 5 sessions of about 10 - 15 tries / session before I landed my first one. Took a while more to get them consistant.
ts front roll - I hadn't done any type of fronts until this year, but landed a scarecrow on my 5th try! I havent tried the front yet.

Just kinda happened! I hold on with both hands through the trick and just get pulled around to revert. I also find a ts backroll to revert easier than a regular ts backroll (Though in that case I can do both - hold on with both hands and handle to the hip that you want to land in front).

1000 attempts for backroll
25 attempts for tantrum
8 attempts for 360
3 attempts for raley
1 attempt for wrapped 360...i lost 70lbs over the winter after I landed a backroll the end of summer. I figured i needed to be thinner to be better. it worked
