ok well i have been trying ts frontrolls for about 2 weeks and i have landed a couple, but i am having trouble. It seems like i am floating too much and i cant get it all the way around. I usually but check when i fall. Any tips? Also, I am thinking of trying 360's again. Can someone give me a step by step instruction on what i need to do?

thanks,
Justin

Frontroll: Try a more aggressive edge as you approach the wake, and also make sure that you are keeping the handle close to your hip with your front hand.
HS 360: Do not edge hard! Use a mellow cut with a slight ollie at the top of the wake. After you are up in the air, pull the handle with your rear hand into your rear hip, and turn the handle down so you can grab it with your other hand. Now keep it in and land edging away from the boat.

be a lil bit more patient on ur frontrolls wait until u hit the top of the wake before u throw it. you should feel almost a kick of the top of the wake which will help u rotate it. also try to think to over rotate the flip that always helped me in learning the frontroll. and the 360 couldn't of been better put then the above

if u put the rope above your head for the 3 and didnt handlepass like an ole or w/e would that be easier. Ive tried a few but i can't rotate fast enough

Are you kidding? No way. You would just look like a ballerina if you didn't go off axis. Pass the handle.

ts 3s are easier than hs 3s (frontside anyway) and to me off axis ts fs 5s are easier to get to the handle. But for on axis hs and ts 3s dont let off your edge like a tantrum or ts front roll, but also dont get so much load on the line that it is impossible to pass the handle. Nick said it perfect but most people dont have trouble with the rotation but with the handle. My advice would be to learn em at low speeds from inside to outside the wake, out into the flats a little. Youll get your pass a little more confident.
