So I havent been boarding as much as I'd like this summer, but I'm still having problems with all the same tricks as last year so I was wondering if anyone had any pointers. First off: Raleys. I can extend but never get my feet back under me. I ALWAYS roll forward into a front flip. Second: 360s. These have alluded me for so long. I can do tantrums and rolls and such, but not a simple 360. i always go offaxis. So if anyone had any simple pointers that helped them nail these 2 tricks, I'd love it cause I'm going out tomorrow and I'd like sometihing to think about
if you have a tramp, eaiest way to practice is to hook up the rope to a tree. Or just tie it to a tree, and just and do the handle pass, it helps.

for 360s, start with wrapped till you get the feel for it. just go small, and get a little pop, i can do a bunny hop 360 handle pass no problem, its all about being under control, not getting the air. its actually easier to go small for 360s instead of big. once you can do wrapped easily, go for the handle pass, but you have to wait till you're near the peak of your jump before you even do the handle pass, otherwise you will just go off axis and have a painful crash. i hope this helps mate
