ok so i consider myself to be a pretty decent wakesurfing, i can ride forever and do a few cool things and i gotta admit i look pretty styling doing it :-)

i started surfing on the LF skimskat 4'6" and was starting to learn 360s on it, i could rotate perfectly and i would always just land a little to far back in the wave so i would ride it for a sec or two and then loose the wave. about this time i switched to the phase 5 prop. this board is so much more fun to ride. it's way faster and cuts and slashes so much better. the board is night and day more fun, my riding has deffinitely progressed since i started riding this board. now for the bad, since i started riding the phase 5 i can't 360 anymore? everytime i try i get about 270 and then the edge digs in and i sink? any advice here would be great :-)

It's a different beast, isn't it? :-) The difference in outline and rocker dictate a different style of riding and weight transfer. Have you looked at this vid of Jaime?

Be patient and make it to the'll see him ollie into a 3, but pay careful attention to where he's doing the rotation, it's basically all up on the lip and then he falls back in to the pocket with the board pretty much flat.
