Every time i try a shuv it i either land on the board and do a front flip off or land on the edge wit my toes and just slip off. What can help me to land it?

Make sure that you keep that handle in so that you get a little slack in the rope. That way you won't get pulled over the nose. Other than that, bending your knees to start the move is key. That will help your foot placement when stomping the landing. The other thing is to try keeping your shoulders over your hips in the air so you don't land too much to either toe side or heel side.

Aside from that, the only advice would be practice. Dedicate an entire run to just doing shuvs and you'll hit it in no time! Good luck!

I just landed my first shuv today.. first try letting the boat/pwc speed up a bit and edge out into ur heelside flats and let go of the handle, and then stick the trick. then try it still into the heelside flats but hold onto the handle and try to land with your feet as far apart from each other for stability.
