Anybody Else have this issue? I'm starting to attempt these once and a while, but it seems like everytime i do this, im getting decent height, and good extension, but as i hit the top of the air, i'm go into a roll and BOOM! Anybody else have this problem, and anybody know how to correct it? Thanks!

On my first attempts i would look at the water, and do about half an S-bend; landing on my back. I was later told to look into the boat, this helped.

i use to do the big raley to front flip too...you just have to make sure edge all the way in and pop up first then let ur legs and ur arms out....keep ur eye on the boat and pull the handle down towards ur front hip when tryin to land...if u really commit to not letting go and bring the handle down you won't front flip

don't let go of the rope and you won't do a front flip. The momentum of the trick is throwing you forward into a front flip if you think about it. Which is the reason you are layed out, looking down at the boat. If the handle pops out of your hand, you are going to continue forward into a front roll. If you hang on tight and jerk it in when the boat tries to pop the handle out of your hand, you will land a HUGE raley.
