spins, flips, or fat grabs

whats more appealing to you?

whats funner to do?

whats harder to do?

chuckin a huge backside 180, a nice clean smooth 360, or going 360+..

or is a nice backroll, tantrum or crow the way to go...

do we enjoi a huge air with a nice poke or two..

obviously we want a nice blend of everything within a good wakeboarding set and even mixing the variations together is even better. (quite abit more advanced though)

imho.. spins are fun as hell and can be extremely tough to do at times. Stick a fat grab in with your 360 or backside 180 and the ladies onboard will really dig it. flips are fun and all i just think they get old to watch especially when we see the same tantrum or backroll done 7x.... different variations of spins and grabs are what i really watch for.

im curious to hear what others think..

I'd just be happy to be able to do anything off of your list...

Rode with a kid who had a couple rolls, tantrum etc... and a 540 he tried about 10 times and never landed. I was unimpressed never saw a switch wake to wake, or anything in between.

Go big or go home is cool when you are 20, but for my advanced age I prefer seeing some variety, style and a good mix of switch, and toeside airs.

Someday would like to have a Raley and maybe figure out how to do those off axis shifty twisty grab tricks. For now I'll be happy if I can comfortably land a W2W Blindside 180 and a W2W 360.

The Backside 180s, HS Backside 360, toeside 360, Scarecrow and the Mobius. If you want a real crowd pleaser, the Raley always satisfies (or Hoochie Glide), also Osmosis 540s are also extremely impressive! You're right, the variations will impress those who know what the tricks are.

Considering that I turned 39+11 in June, a good fun run with no injuries is what I'm all about.

Too old now, but a few years ago a wake to wake big spin on a skate was my favorite trick I could land. Hurt myself good last time I missed one and learned my lesson.

W2W 180's are easy for me, I struggle with the 360's. sometimes I land em, sometimes i'm off axis. I learned a lot watching someone teaching heli's off the jump ramp last weekend. That arm that's NOT holding onto the rope is key to your spin and keeping your head up, not looking down!
at 45 y/o, it's starting to hurt when I fall!

Eyes on the horizon. If you look in the water, that's where you'll end up. That's what dad used to tell me.

"Ya look down, Ya fall down" I can't tell you how many times I heard My Buddy Don R. tell me that. Now, when I return back to my kids after they fall, they always say " I Know dad, Ya Look down, Ya fall down"

Exactly and how you launch is exactly how you are gonna land so stand tall and look at the horizon.
