I don't think you're edging quite hard enough. It looks like you're flattening out. (raley) As far as the scarecrow, u may wanna hold the rope in a lil tighter to your body. You also started star gazing on your raley. If you continue to have problems with this, concentrate on looking at the tower and not the water. Hope this helps some.

Looks like you're hucking the trick off the wake and losing the tension of the rope. This is one of those "trick flip" edging (like tannys) tricks.

Try cutting harder at the start. Stand tall at the wake (I've just started consciously cocking my upper body back --like loading a slingshot -- as I approach the wake so that when I hit the wake, I can get a better rotation). Keep the rope tension.

Also, make sure you can land switch out in the flats (either switch straight air or toe 180's). Have to land on your heels edging away from the boat.

Never been able to do a raley myself. Good luck.
