Question about the 911 - I have no problem getting into the proper position, plenty of hang time to execute the move, but I lose rope control or can't figure out the proper rope position to bring the board back under me once I get into the backside twister position. This is the same position as a batwing, and I had the same problem when I tried a few of those last year.
Anyone have any suggestions on the proper technique to get the board back under you from these positions or is it just a try and learn method until you figure it out?

Thanks for any serious help given

hey check out www.endofropegang.com this came from adam fields and he is explaining the trick. also check out the squence.

"... make sure you know what the move looks like. Check out sequences in instructional issues of Wakeboarding Mag or on the internet. The best German wakeboarder, Hardy does one on the german website, www.wakeboard1.de. If you'll notice in all the pictures the rider turns his head backwards, looking behind. This helps turn the body and board more and fully commit yourself to the move. Do a HUGE raley or two first to ensure good timing and lift, then do your 9-1-1 just as big. Ideally your rope will stay very taught, giving you control over the landing. Use your arms to make sure you land on the board. Last but not least, make it simple. In other words, don't over complicate the work and skill involved in making this move happen. Rely on confidence"
