Try going in one handed and simply passing the handle to your other hand during your jump. It'll help you around.

I'll try that, thanks. I got the spin down almost perfect every time but I was having trouble getting my weight adjusted onto my toe side and not letting the rope pull me over. I was going big all the way across the wakes. The last attempt I said f*** and did a nose grab while spinning and came the closest to landing it.

I hate fakie. I used to skate, I snowboard and I wakeboard and fakie is STILL the most awkward position for me. Guess sideways sports are not my forte!

I can ride fakie just not very well yet. I think it would be easier for me to land a 360.

I'm going to try that next time I'm out. I'll let ya'll know how it goes. I'm catching big air behind a 16' whaler with 4 people in it, then I get in my boat with the tower and 6 people and it feels like I'm flying. It would be nice if I had a proper wakeboard boat, or atleast knew somebody with one, but I'm doing pretty good with what I have.

From our last trip in March. COLD ASS WATER. Especially at 6:00am when it's like glass.

nope. that looks intense. is it up in the air the whole time or will it like slam you back down onto the water? cuz one time i was tubing, it was me and one other person on on tube and two others on another. and me and the other guy on my tube jubed on the other tube so all 4 of us were on one tube. and the other tube would fly like 40 feet in the air and the drop supper quick and slam into us or the water. one time when it dive bombed us it hit us all in the head and somehow chipped a guys tooth and made another kid bite his tongue really bad. it was funny though because it didnt hurt me

I've got 5 of them at the house they're now illegal, at least in SC, because people were getting hurt and even killed from getting slammed or thrown from them. If you're good you can move your body and control which way it goes. I've still got 5 and have had people offer me thousands of dollars for one since DNR and river patrol started confiscating them shortly after they became illegal. Fun as hell and I still take my out once a blue moon. When I heard about them being banned via my family members whom are LEO I put my life savings into buy like 20 of them and have since recouped my money with a nice chunk of profit.

Also went out this past weekend and got up first shot with pure upper body. I use to put the bar on my knees until I got out the water and it was easier to hold on but didn't have to this weekend.
