hey people, i know there is a trick tips section but i need lots of feedback as soon as possible, so i hope you don't mind me posting here. I have been landing the tantrum on and off all season, not that i am getting the the trick really high i can't land it anymore, i think i may be over rotating. Any tips to help me master this? i'm competing for the first time in wakestock this year. thanks

i also can't seem to make the handle pass when trying a 360, i spin fine, but can't get the handle

keep the handle in. If done correctly you rotate around the handle, and you can use the handle to speed up, slow down, or stop your rotation.

On your 3, the spin is half the battle. If you can ride away from it with no handle then you're half-way there. Cut as soft as you can and still clear the wake, pump the wake and take the trick straight up, give the handle a slight tug with both hands and pass it. The edge is the key.

For a while I thought I was edging soft enough, and then I rode with someone who told me I still needed to edge softer.

Another thing with the handle pass. You have to pull the handle to your other hand. You can't try to reach for the handle to make the pass. If you try to reach for the handle to make the pass, you will fall off axis and bite hard.
