My son almost has this, but he either lands tail heavy and slips out or lands and catches a TS edge and face plants. He's getting plenty of pop and the rotation looks good. On Waketrix, the riders are putting their head more toward their front knee on the rotation. I'm wandering if this helps in keeping the weight forward. Or maybe its the handle position getting him pulled around just enough to catch that TS edge. Any tips on correcting this?

Try more weight on the front foot off the wake. "How you leave the wake is how you'll land" holds true for this too. Tell him to think about coming in fast, then rocking weight towards the front foot as you come off edge. It's easy to get tail heavy when edging hard toeside. Catching the TS edge is most likely handle position, try to put it behind you for the landing.

Thanks Patrick. Both points make perfect sense. We'll try those out tomorrow.
