Ok, This sounds gay but every time i try the 3 i always land backwards and my board gets caught in the water and my head hits and knock myself out so bad i dont remember the jump!! lol i know i suck!!! any thing i can do off water or on water that would help. thx, JoRdOn}
trying pulling the handle in to your trailing hip reach for the handle with your leading hand which now should put the handle at the small of your back, at this point snap your head around so you can spot the landing. just doing a standard w2w jump and trying to grab the handle (without pulling it into your hip) will result in a head slap for the majority of riders - speaking from past experience. good luck!
I've just started working on my 3's. Had the same problem. Now I get my run in and right before I get ready to try my blind 180's and 3's I get a helmet tossed from the boat. Scoop it up, slap it on the noggin, and poof--no more headaches on my screwed up 3's. I'm using the Protec AirWake.
I agree with whit, get the helmet. I got a couple concussions last year from the old numbscull. Put on the helmet till you get enuff rotation for a regular old faceplant, then switch to a hocky goalies mask
