stand tall!!!!!! most beginners bend at the waist or knees. you must stand tall.

When I was first learning them, I found that letting go with your rear hand (right - regular, left - goofy)at the peek/height of your jump, helps with not spinning.
Also pull the handle into your leading hip (left - regular, right - goofy)

But after a while, embrace the natural spin that happens when jumping ts. I actually found w2w, ts, fs 180's easier then regular ts w2w jumps.

anyone have ideas that can help me hold on to the handle. When I was first learning w2w HS I was afraid so someone told me to let go of the rope if I get scared. I did and now, months later, I am clearing the wake everytime but can't get out of the habit of letting go of the handle. Can anhyone help?
