View Full Version : Load and Release backroll

Hey- Ive attempted a few air rolls and almost got around. I am taking it to the wake today .
On air rolls I load the line,turn my head to the sky and it just happens.

1- As I am riding up the wake do I pop while still on this load and stand tall (at the top)still leaning away from the boat and then roll. or release it while riding up the wake and let the board whip around.

2-I guess the question is when do you release and roll foward into the flip. I have no problem loading it back.

I just landed the first two of this season today. We were out wakeboarding for the first time this year and by the end of the day I tried my backrolls. I had them down pretty solid last year and landed the third and fourth attempt. I just say to myself "Up and away" so the board goes up and away (behind me). I really make it a point to stomp the wake near the top, this really plants it in the wake and shoots me straight up as well as causing the board to float behind me initiating the backroll.
