I am so stoked, yesterday landed my first invert...tantrum. At the end of last year I tried about 15 times to no avail. yesterday I stomped it after my second try. So stoked. I cant wait to clean it up and add a grab...

Congrats dude... I just landed my first two wake jumps last week (although at 65ft). I am hoping to increase the length and add height...

Have you practiced on the trampoline at all?

Way to go man, you'll remember that adrenaline rush forever. Share your tips with the newbies out there and what made it 'click' for you.

Good stuff! I'm still stuck on my 360, I can't wait to crush it! I so want to try an invert now too.

John - what was the key for you to land the tantrum? What was the difference between the 1st and the 15th attempt?

anthony- no on the trampoline practice. big winds at my house yesterday did deliver a full size tramp into my back yard, so maybe i will have to use it till the owner comes to get it.

David- the biggest difference from 1st attempt is that I now focus on the pop and then flip. at first i was so focused on the flip that i would be flipping as i was on the wake... now I am popping up before I start my rotation. This has given me a lot more air and more time to spot the landing.
