Ok ive been doing the same tricks over and over and want to learn something new so its not so boring for the people watching, and for me too. I can do ts and hs 180's, switch indy 180's, lipslides, reverse sidlslide, a couple hs grabs, and surface 180's. Im working on the hs fs 360 but cant seem to get the handle pass and land it. Are there any tricks that i should be able to do. It just seems like im not getting any better with the stuff im doing now. I need some more stuff to do.

Can you grab your 180s?

tantrums and scarecrows are pretty easy, one of those should definantly be your first invert. and ts fs 3s are easier to get the handle than hs fs.

On a hs fs 3, The key is to pull the handle in to your back hip. The harder you pull it the easyer it will be to get the handle pass. good luck.

Try doing surface 360's or one wake 3's- it'll help with the handle passing and the feeling of pulling the rope to the small of your back.

Yea i can grab on my switch 180's. and on the handle passes thats my problem is i forget to pull the handle to my hip and the boat pulls me away and cant grab back on with my right hand. Any tricks do getting that handle pass? So ts fs 3's are easier than hs fs 3's?? Hm..guess i'll try that next time. And ive tried a few backrolls but havent landed them yet. I want to land those or a tantrum for my first invert.

or even start off with a wrapped 360
Grab every jump and spin
try some inverts, like tantrum, backroll or scarecrow

explain the wrapped 360- how exactly do you use the launch handle??

pull the handle around your back and hold it with your leading hand. Grasp the small handle or braiding with the rear hand. Pull into the wake with the small handle and release off the wake. This will spin you naturally and is an easy way to learn 3's

Can you do that for a hs fs 3?
Old    Jeff Bridges (jbjboc)      Join Date: Aug 2004       08-01-2005, 2:20 PM Reply   
Yes- wrap the other way

I tried that but it's hard to set your edge HS,try TS it's easier to set your edge.

I think wrapped is kind of cheating.

If I can do it and I am a fat old man. Notice fat without the "PH" I know you can do it. Your 180's would look really cool floating across the wakes.
