One day I will put together a good video collection of the highlights. Like Hak does.

    I know u mentioned going at a slower speed. That
    Makes all the difference on the landing for sure. The kids sure bounce back better than I do from that. It might be the age but also the mileage. Agree that video from hak is awesome.

    YouTube was giving me fits earlier so had to reupload. I canít edit my post so I apologize. I changed some views up and one of those spin attempts I must have snorted more water than Johnny Deep has coke!

    That is epic. I love the dive back into the wave on a 360 and the hair wash in the wave. Great stuff!

    What P5 are you riding?

    If it has not happened yet, those boards are cruel on your body when they hit you doing wipeouts on 360s. I've taken some good thumps on my shins, better my legs vs the head area.

    Itís the 56Ē Matrix. Yea Iíve seen some horror posts of folks with cuts on their forehead and body so I try to keep that in mind. On one of those wipeouts youíll see it also hits me in the head so I just try and cover myself in the water and hope for the best lol.

    The only thing I would say about my experience learning 360's is that you need to get right up to the back of the boat to have enough time to do the spin and recover.

    So of course no video of this but I have been trying to learn 360s. I have also been trying to teach a 7 year old to surf. Had him on the board a couple weeks ago and went for a spin and got not one but two complete rotations! Of course I lost the wave and we sank but the feeling of throwing a 720 with a kid between my legs was awesome! Now to just get my 360s where I stay in the wave!

    Last time out I was getting tired, so I usually end my run with a 360 attempt. I run up close to the boat and initiate my turn, and the cousin driving the boat chops the throttle due to unyielding traffic and what he thought was a water cop.

    I got thrown mid spin into a back-flop on the crest of the passing wave almost hitting my head on the swim step. I separated a rib, and am just am now recovering.

    My wife was so pissed at her cousin because he had plenty of room and didnít need to shut down.

    Right after we got our boat I was out for the first time trying to surf behind it. Was my wifes first time driving our new to us boat and I tried to be cute and jump onto swim platform from my board when I told her to shut it down. Our platform has whatever moomba used to use prior to gator step which is super slick when its wet. I didnt realize that and crumpled into a ball when i hit it with my feet. Hurt like hell and she thought she had killed me. Definitely a lesson learned.

    Surely you told her yes it was her fault and took advantage of some sympathy!

    There is no sympathy for my foolishness! She was not amused. But thats pretty typical, I do something dumb she freaks out but we get a laugh out of it later.
