OK, so I learned the backrolls a couple weeks ago and those are solid and smooth now, so I started trying scarecrows. I know I'm not getting enough pop off the wake toeside. I'm working on going up instead of out, waiting for the pop before I rotate, however I have a problem with line tension that I'm not sure how to deal with. Take a look at this pic:


I actually managed to land this one, but it's really sketchy. When I start going taller and waiting for the pop, will the rope take care of itself, or am I doing something wrong to get slack in the line? Should I keep my arms out more? I've always hammered into my brain to keep the handle at my hips going toeside... any tips from you guys throwing huge ts tricks would be appreciated.

By the way, you can see a few more of my pics here

I think you are on to something with the location of the handle. It should be more over your head and away from your hip. It looks like you have good height. I'm thinking that the location of the handle is slowing your rotation.

keeping the handle close = faster rotation
letting the handle out = slows down rotation

maybe you're flattening out too soon?

Is that true even when you are as horizontal as he is?
