    Default Guts to do Invert

    I'm pretty comfortable wake to wake heel side and toe side. I can do some grabs and a Stiffy. I really want to have an invert or two in my bag of tricks, but just can't get the guts to throw one. A few years ago I started working on a back roll, but never landed it. I crashed pretty hard multiple times though. Does anyone have suggestions on how to get the guts up to just try and throw it?

    From what I remember, gentle cut in, then go up the wake with legs straight, then look over my leading shoulder.

    Easy. Put 4-5 hot chicks in the boat and have about 4 beers.

    I stopped trying after a week of dehydration (with continuous attempts of rehydration with tasty beverages) and landing on my head (CNS trauma) causing me to develop shingles. Good luck!

    couple guys I know that can throw them started on trampolines in the yard to get the motion down first..

    I don't know this from experience as I can't clear the wake so try at your own risk

    Pretty sure you need put you head toward your trailing shoulder otherwise you be rotating the complete wrong directing but I am sure Todd Brooks can chime in with some good advice

    Sounds like you are getting older, wiser, and realizing you have got to go to work the next day.

    Learning tricks, we slow down the boat and load up the side for the approach. Bring the rope in to about 50’ and go about 17 mph. Then start speeding up and going back out on the rope, once the dynamics are down.

    Here is what Dave’s got to say about a HS backroll…

    It is completely a commit thing trust me. If you don't commit it is going to hurt way worse than going for it. I broke my ankle several years ago when one foot came out doing a tantrum and I am finally landing them fairly consistently this year.

    Do you feel more comfortable doing a flip into a pool or a cartwheel. Cartwheel = Roll Flip = Tantrum.

    the saying on my boat is
    "hesitation leads to pain"
    And it seem to happen to me more than anyone else on the boat.

    This is exactly where I was in my 20's. I quit trying after too many face slaps. I'm now in my early 40's and remember how hard it was in my 20's! I probably won't get to inverts.... Oh well.
