What was the first one you tried? TS or HS? I am going to try this trick TS at first because I can and the TS 5 and roll. I was wondering how the first attempt went for someone who has done this? Is it as simple as pulling your knees to your chest off the wake? Any tips...

The toeside 5 is pretty easy. You go in on a trip flip edge like a scarecrow, although you throw it more sideways- duh. I donīt back off quite as much on my fives, but I guess that kind of depends on how you do your crows. The key to off axis spins is rope control. Keep it low and close and you should be fine.

sean, my friend skylar does these wrapped - got it on his third try, says they're pretty easy wrapped. he says its almost like doing a wrapped backroll.

i havent had the chance to try it yet, but it sounds like a good way to at least get familiar with the rotation and body position - and if you can already do handle-pass 3s then its just a case of putting the two together after that.

HS O/A three's are pretty easy, just take off like a backroll and just reach for the handle pass, and it comes around by itself.

i have been trying oa for 5 months now(i live in orlando, fl so i have been riding through winter) i have tried hs oa 5, hs oa3, and ts oa 5. I haven't landed one yet. Once you figure out the rotation though the ts 5 is easier. The hs oa 3 you haev to liek stop you rotation because whenever your body goes oa it wants to do a 5(try oa on the trampoline without the handle if you dont believe me, you will always do a 5). On a hs oa 5 you have to make 2 handle passes so that makes it kinda hard. With the ts 5 you only need one handle pass, and the landing is super weasy. It's just aboyut putting all of the leements together.

As for going wrapped, i have never tried that. Not a bad idea.

Don't get discouraged, oa takes nearly everyone a really long time(usyually a month or two, i jsut can't seem to get it)
