Are you trying them from your toeside or from your heelside?

Hold the rope at your front hip, and when you hit the wake, pop a little and rotate around the handle so that it is at your new front hip. It's a fairly easy trick, but its getting back from switch to your normal stance thats the hard part. The spinning part is not much harder than jumping off the groujnd and doing a 180. Good luck on sticking it.

i first learned when the boat was turning, so there was a curl in the wake, so i landing towards the inside, this gave the board a lot of give so the fins wouldnt grab as much, i cam in toeside, spun the 180, and rode away first try

Get up in a fakey position (easiest way to get fakey). Pull outside the wake and advance on the boat a little (pull the handle into your lead hip). Ollie, rotate 180 and pull the handle to your other hip. Sometimes letting go with your back hand on the landing helps people. Once you can do this you can move to wake 180s.

You might want to find the instructional video called "the Book" building the fundamentals.

Try spinning when you are almost about to land, if you start out spinning when you first hit the wake you will not get enough air/speed to go all the way around and than a nice laugh is in store for the people in the boat. This is what I have learned through my experience, I am not that good though.

Slow the boat down to about 15 mph and practice surface 180's first. Slowing the boat down will allow your fins to release easier and it takes the pain away should you catch an edge. Just get up riding normal and pull the handle with both hands to your other hip. It will help to let go with your back hand once you are switch to keep the boat from pulling your hips forward.

Once you are comfortable with these learn to do and ollie 180 out in the flats. Same concept as the surface 180 except you need to ollie before you pull the handle to your back hip.

From there learn the a one wake 180 from the middle of the wake out. At this point you should have them down enough to try them wake to wake.

I guess I will need to search the avatar web sites for a new identity. Feel free to send me any you might think are appropriate for me. I was thinking of this one.
