Well, I've my ts frontroll, scarecrow, hs fs 3, backroll, roll revert, tantrum and landed 2 hs fs 5 at the end of last season. What mobe should I start to work on for this season : Whirlybird, crow mobe, tootsie roll or any other idea?

If you can land toeside threes I would try crow mobes first. But you can also try whirlybirds since you can do tantrums. My advice would be to get on a trampoline and see which ones feel the most comfortable. The first mobe I learnded was a big worm. And that is supposed to be pretty hard but it just came easy for me so just go with what feels comfortable. later, Mike

Is big worm one more 180 than a diesel? Is so, you landed big worm before diesel? I do trampoline everyday, I'm very consistant with my tricks which are : pete rose, moby dick, KGB, crowmobe and crow mobe 5, ts fs oa 9, mobius, g-spot, tootsie roll, dum dum and my whilybirds but I do know how to explain it but I spin them like I do the tantrum and the overhead bs 3 but they still look strange so don't know if it's a good thing to try them on the water.

A big worm is a toeside front roll 5 with no handle pass. I can't do them on the tramp only on the water. My advice would be the mobe you feel the most comfortable on tramp. Give that one a shot. I learned big worm by just hucking my body after missing a double up. I landed on the board without the rope. Couple of tries later I stuck it. Since then I have learned crow mobes moby dicks and whirly birds. Just go with what feels comfortable. And you never know unless you go for it on the water. Good luck, MIke

Damn Mike I didn't know you could ride like that!

I promise I'll send that "thing" to you soon. I know I've been lagging bad.

Actually the pic was in wake boarding mag. I will post some videos of it soon. I am going on vacation for two weeks so i am planning on landing some new stuff. But I will take some video with the new camera i got, and put them on wakeworld. I hadn't done a worm before this last weekend in two years cause I lost the trick when I learned crow mobes. But I finally got it back. I am finally passionate about riding again, I would say it has been about five years since i have been this pumped to ride. I am going to try some toeside rolls to blind and some other crazy stuff.
Ant whenever you get that out it will be great. I just bought a jurassic park pinball machine tonight for the game room.
Later, MIke

What about a toostie roll? Are they that hard?

Dude I cannot even understand the rotation of a tootsie roll. I don't like looking over that shoulder. Saying that tootsie rolls are supposed to be one of the easiest handle pass inverts to do. If you got it dialed on the tramp. I would say go for it. My girlfriend can do them awsome on the tramp and she is going to start trying them on the water very soon. Probably in a week or two. Good luck and go for it. Later, Mike

mike is right tooties are one of the easyest handle pass mobes as long as when you hit the wake you squar up like a tantrum but therow the front keep the handle in realy tight and pass early come in like you would for a normal front keep your chest up on the landing and you should stick it in no time good luck

do you have a video of a tootsie roll so I can watch it in slow motion? Does the feeling on the water look like the one on the tramp?

jean what the heck is the wakeboarding trick called g-spot
Old    jpbray            05-25-2006, 2:43 PM Reply   
it's a toeside backroll with a back side 180. And if you do a bs 3 then it's called a blind pete I think.

Crushed my ribs on a whirly on vacation still have some footage of a few big worms i will post on line. I won about a thousand dollars playing poker in two weeks which makes the ribs feel better but not all the way better. Later Mike
Good luck with the tootsie roll

It is me on a premier but it is not at canyon lake, it is at lake tulloch. The key to the big worm is to try them on a turn. Meaning if you are left foot forward you want the boat to have mild turn to the right. This will give you slack in the line. If you try them without doing this the line tension will kill you. It only took me about 10 tries to stick it. And it used to easier for me then a toeside straight air. I just got them back and for me it is an easy trick. Easier then all the other mobes I do. Later Mike
