Stuck my first crow today after some some hard work. i tried again and it was touch and go, stalled out in the air and crashed big. we have not got perfect pass and think that maybe it is me pulling speed at the wake so last part of rotation is lost without the pull from the boat maybe. Or do i just need to cane it in now?

congratulations! i can't do this trick - haven't even tried, so take this observation for what it's worth:

almost at the apex of your rotation you pull your legs in and look like you're going to land a regular ts front roll. you start the cartwheel but then it looks like you kinda abandon it and then whip the last 180. if you just kept on with the rotation you start off the wake with you should be perfect.

but again - nice going!

Chris you should give it a go! i found explanations of how to initiate the spin difficult but found that standing tall edging towards the wake with the top of your body facing the boat. you feel like a coiled up spring as you goi to the wake, strange but feels right.

hey andrew, i will definitely give it go - just gotta around to it - there's so much to try! but i want to get the front roll first. im almost there - but again, trying so many things that i haven't thrown one in awhile. trying to get my ts backroll back first! and then there's the switch fs 3s i just tried for the first time yesterday, my bs 180s to work on, blah blah blah. that's one of the good things about being beginner/intermediate - no lack of stuff to work on!
