I hear the term visualizing tricks a lot but I'm curious about when this occurs. Are you visualizing the trick on your approach to the wake or do you follow a routine of tricks that you have planned out? I ask this question as I seem to make the same mistakes over and over again on certain tricks before I get them right. Maybe I'm too focused on getting the line tension/body position/pop right while approach the wake and not enough on visualizing what I will be doing in the air and on the landing? In short, what's going thru your mind as you approach the wake?

As an example it took me forever to ride away from W2W HS 180's as I would land more on the heelside and instead of toe side and fall back. If I don't focus on getting body posture right early in the trick I don't stick the landing.

I have always looked at and taught visualization as more of a dryland technique. But this can also be done behind the boat. Not while your cutting in for the trick. Behind the boat I think it helps more for handle pass inverts. What you will do is kinda go through the movements needed to complete the trick in your head and after you get that right then take it to the wake. if you see yourself falling in your head, your going to fall.
