I've been close to riding out my 360s for about the last year now, but could never keep up with the wave, and would fall out of the pocket, or I would over-rotate. Finally rode away from one today, and it was sweet.

I didn't even have to pump the board, just landed right in the pocket and kept riding.

Of course, I didn't have the video camera, but I'll post some vid of the next session, where I'm hopefully landing them at will!

Congrats man, that had to be a great feeling. I can get around on them consistently but I usually end up too high in the wake to ride back down into the pocket. Hopefully by the end of the summer I'll stick one. What board you riding?

I ride a Walzer Alpha Twin Tip board. Walzer went out of business a little while ago, so they don't make them anymore, but it's a great all-around board if you ever get a chance to ride one.

That is a great board.

I too have a tendency to not catch the wave after. I found starting a bit into the flats helps. I land a few each time out now. Fun stuff
