I attempted a whirly today and a few in the boat said it looked like I went tantrum to blind and crashed hard on left side of face (I'm goofy). It felt like I was twisting, but I definately got confused because I couldnt' figure out where I was within the trick.
I almost feel like I waited a few seconds late to throw my arm across, but just not sure. I also felt really layed out while twisting. Maybe I didn't square up enough. I usually throw my tantrums very big and way out into the flats. I think that might be hurting me on this trick.
