So I've been trying shove its on my new board. I can land them pretty consistently with and without the rope but I can't seem to stay in the push of the wake and end up losing speed and eventually sinking. Any tips or tricks? Also have done a few (2 or 3) 360s but haven't been able to accomplish them lately. What's the next trick or task I should try?
And loving my new 2012 X2. Thanks MC! I

Any pictures of your wake? If you are pulling those tricks its likely not your ability, could be the push and length.

A video of your trick may help also.

Follow on tricks for "skim style" riders: 540, switch-foot backside, revert to surface spins, 360 shuv. Should be able to find you tube videos of all these tricks. Wake9 has competition videos showcasing all these tricks.

I'll get some pics up soon. The wake, in my opinion, is great. Which is why I'm a little confused. Cuz I can land these tricks but just can't ride away with them. Maybe trying the trick toward the top of the wake would work? I'll try to get some pics and vids up in the next two days.

lean forward with your front foot to help you maintain after the 360, not sure about your other trick... If it was me, Id tell that trick to shove it! haha but really, I dont have any advice on the shove it
