OK i desperately need help on landing 3 different tricks that I've been struggling with for a while. I've tried all these tricks to many times to count so please help me. I'm very close on all of these tricks but jus can't seem to ride away.

Tantrum-landed 2 but usually turn half of a FS 180 and the rope gets ripped out on landing.

Backroll-landed none. Same problem as tantrum.

360-landed none. Not so much the landing but I CANNOT find that handle behind me. I'm fine with surface 360's and on the trampoline but it feels like I can't pull the handle in when I'm actually tryin them.

Oh ya everything is regular stance and the 360 is a HS FS.

Hey Greg,
On your tantrum and backroll it is hard to give advice without seeing it but I am betting on your tantrum you need to square up your shoulders to the wake on takeoff. On your backroll you are probably leaving the handle to far in front of your body on take off glue it to your hips. Finally your 360 hs fs when I was having problems getting the handle some local pro's told me a little trick was to back off your edge ever so slightly when you hit the wake which gives the rope just enough slack to help you grab it. Once you grab a few you get the feeling and you can stop backing off your edge.

Ya I was taught not to turn sideways at first on my tantrum so it would be easier to grab in teh future so it's hard to break that habit but im trying. Backroll I'll try that out next time i ride. I've tried hitting the 3 many ways, progressive, smooth edge, and flattening out it still seems to pull away from me. I think i might try the milk jug trick this week. Thanks.

Got the backroll consistent. Up untill last week I hadn't landed a single one, then i tried maybe 10 last week landed 2. Last night it just clicked, i landed 7 out of 8 perfectly. Still no 3 or tantrum but also perfected my grabed 1's and almost got my start up roller 3's workin,
