I have been working on my raley by slowly getting use to letting the load pull my hips away
from the rope. I keep cutting harder and harder and letting my body extend further and further out.
I feel like I have learned alot about the cut and where to be looking to keep straight in
the air. Has anybody else done this? Does anybody think it helps? I am so much more
comfortable with cutting hard. I feel like it is helping me alot. I need to learn this
with minumal crashes becuase my body can't handle it. The only part I am not sure about is the body postion when
leaving the wake? I want to have my body standing tall to get the pop. But do I want the
load to kick my legs back or the momentum(force) of the cut? I can do backrolls in my sleep.
do I want the same cut just accerelated?

I have just been trying these too. The cut is very similar to a backroll, but you have to load your front leg a little more. When I went in exactly like a backroll, I started rotating, and landing on my back. You basically need a little more weight on the front leg. As far as what kicks your legs out, it is the load in the line. That is why it is important to use a good progressive edge. I cut in hard, then when I hit the top of the wake I stand a little taller then normal tricks, to sort of get my body in motion, but it is very minute, almost more of a thought than an action. For the crashing part, when I started, I just went up, let my board go out behind me, and let go of the rope. Then I could just do a dive into the water. Once I got the superman position down, I tried bringing it back in. Hope this helps, and let me know how it goes.

No calm water this week to try. Confidents is building. It would sure be nice to beable to see someone do one.

Steve - Can you do a raley now? how is the process going?

Learning these as well... lots of wrecks. To minimize the pain I'd suggest trying them on a skate first. The pop isn't the same but bailing out isn't painful at all.

I have tried the skate thing. I just don't get the same cut/feel on the skate. Maybe if I could take the bindings off my board and had some good tape on it. It has been a while since I have tried that. Maybe I should try again. I'm little closed minded huh

I landed my first one this last weekend. I haven't had a painful wipe out yet. At least not as bad as I had expected. What I found I was doing, is popping up, letting my legs fly out, then once the tug on the rope came, I would just bail. I didn't even realize that it was from the tug at first, because of all the adrenaline. So I would just let go, and dive in the water, which didn't hurt. The only somewhat painful one was when I started to rotate like a backroll, and landed on my back, but if you put your but down first, and not your head, it isn't bad. Once I realized that I was letting go at the tug, I just gripped it tighter, and when it came, I pulled it like a hard sit up or something. Luckily I got my board under me, and didn't catch an edge. The first couple times I slid out the back, but I got that part down in no time. This really isn't a hard trick at all. Just bail a couple times, to get the feel of the trick, then try stickin them. Good luck

You don't need tape on your board. Just take the bindings off, ride it blank, and do the railey.

The pressure you put on the board during a railey cut is all you need to keep it on your feet.
