ive never landed any no wake tricks (except for 180's) but i tried a bel-air (no wake tantrum) and i totally wiped out but the guys in the boat gave me some props and thought it looked sweet. so if i was you i would just cut out really hard, jump, and throw you head back as hard you can. if anything it might look cool and landing one would be sweet since not too people try no-wake tricks.

The key to any air trick is loading the line. You want to have as much tension on the line as posible. If you are trying a bel-air, startjust outside the wake and cut away from the wake. Get some speed up and just before you throw it change your edge(so the board actually cuts back), stand tall and throw your head back.

Give me a break Travis. I was about to say you probably can't land one, then I checked your profile. Don't let riding with greatness go to your head, it feels just as good landing a move like that today as when Darin did it, (not that I would know from personal experience). We with our feet and heads closer to the ground enjoy picking tricks we think are cool and working on them reguardless of old school new school trends.

Funny this came up, because I just posted about tumble turns. (laughing to myself or is it at myself), hows that for out of style! I'm going to do them this summer. I love this sport.

no problem. i am afraid sarcasm doesn't translate well in type. 90% of what i'm saying is a joke! but, it you want to try air tricks probably your best bet is going to be with a roll to revert or half cab roll. its easy to load up the line by simply rising and turning away.
