Ok, so I havent been on the water in a while due to a broken knee cap but I should be back in a couple of weeks, anyway:

Ive heard its esier to do ts 7's or hs 7's off the double up, but for some reason I feel more comfortable doin hs wake 2 wake 7's, Ive popped the handle on about 4 or 5, I feel like Im not gettin enough rotation. Ive seen alot of pros go off-axis while doing these but I dont go off-axis much and Im still almost getting the rotation!?! any help would be awesome!

I spin on axis also. I find it much easier to spin 7's W2W but on the other hand i never do double up's so i cant every get a consistant pop off to do 7's but when i have done w2w 7's i really concentrate on the pop. expecially HS 7's. T/s 7's you really dont need that much pop just quick hands. HS i find a little bit more difficult b/c of the sencond handle pass. i would really just focus on keeping the handle in super close and really focus on taking off at the top of the wake.

by taking off of the wake, do you mean spinning right off the wake, cuz I tried that one time and I slammed pretty hard! lol

Off the double-up is easier if you are comfortable with the d-up because you get more upward energy without the tension of crossing speed. Try shortening the line a little and use a very mild cut at the first peak. You will go up more and the handle will be softer to pass. Also, if you have a great driver try cutting the throttle back a little after the first handle pass.

Good luck.

dont go straight for them clay, you still got a week of physical therapy left.

and practice 3's and 5's off the double up before you go right back to it, you havnt rode since october.

though your tantrum to face off the double up was hilarious to us all we dont want to see it happen again man mkay?
