Pop-Pull-Pass

Be sure to look over your shoulder to help with the rotation too and pull that handle to the middle of your lower back, and grab it. viola!

Oh, and it's THE not HTE

Sounds lke you are spinning too early, most likely off the wake, which causes you not to have any slack in the rope, which in turn pulls the rope away from you. True you may be able to land the trick sometimes, but most likely your 3's look sloppy and not very fluid. The best advice I can give is wait a tiny bit longer, after you've felt the pop of the wake and at the midway point of the w2w jump, basically at your highest point, before you intiate the pull of the handle for the 3. Another thing which will cause you to wait is go for a grab on your 3's. Doing a slob 3 will cause you to wait before you pull the handle, and your grabing hand helps to stablize and flatten out your rotation, thus keeping you on axis, and hopfully preventing anymore diggers. Hope that gives you some help. Also don't look down, you look down you go down.

Jump and put the rope in the small of your back and make it a habbit to look behind the boat as if the cops were following you and you need to see how close they are getting.

Now, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat! Viola!

it's "voila." a "viola" is a musical instrument that's slightly bigger than a violin.

I fail to see a legitimate reason for the kid to be getting flamed like he is. Sure this belongs in trick tips, but if you've got some advice, give it. Otherwise, it's getting a bit hot in here for no reason... Wait, is this WB?

John -- I think someone told you to go search through the trick tip archives, and this is great advice. I know for a fact that your question has been asked and answered many times before.
