    Default The "Official" Old Guys 360 Attempt Thread

    Ok, I have been slacking with the 360
    attempts. I have never really tried before. It is time.

    Pretty ugly 1st attempt.

    My buddy was a lot closer but could
    not stop the rotation.

    Dang, he went right by it! Watch your vid again. One of the instructional videos says be careful about turning left too much before you turn right. Might want to work on just going around right without leaning out left first. Makes it a longer way around.

    I was thinking I was starting my spin too far up the wave and maybe that's why I was losing it out the back when I did actually make it all the way around. This was only 3 in the boat. Earlier in the day with 11 in the boat + ballast and I had a lot more wave to work with but it was more of a demo for a couple who had never seen wakesurfing.

    Welcome to the game, Al. What do you weigh, by the way, about a buck forty soaking wet? You should have to land the 720 to qualify.

    Good one Kane. I have not weighed 140 since I don't know when. Currently at around 170.

    I didn't realize there was a weight requirement also, thought it was just an age requirement

    Did anyone tell Al about the "initiation process" he'll have to go through to join?

    Glad to hear from you Al, I was beginning to think I was the only one in the 50 year old vintage in here. Maybe we can start an "even older" guys 360 attempt thread.

    Not to worry. We'll all be part of it in a few years -- still trying to nail the first one.
