Wrapped Backside 180 Inside Out
Doing a wrapped backside 180 from the inside out is another stepping stone in working your way toward being able to do this wake to wake. While doing the trick inside out you will have line tension throughout the spin, which actually helps you spin, and you will be going a little bit higher off the water. This will force you to wait until the peak of your jump to start to spin.
Have the boat slow down to 13 to 17 mph. Start out in the wrapped position standing inside the wakes but on the opposite wake you will cut toward. Cut toward the wake at a moderate speed. You’re not trying to go 5 feet in the air and 15 feet out; this is more of a drill to help you learn the motions and the feeling of the trick, so it’s better to start small. Once you approach the wake, let off your edge. You don’t want to try to ollie while you’re still on your edge. This takes a bit of timing, though. If you let off too early, you won’t have enough speed to ollie and get off the water, but if you hold your edge too long, you won’t be able to do a clean ollie and get off the water very well either. As you approach the wake, let off your edge and ollie off the top. Allow yourself to rise up to the peak of your jump before you start to spin. Once you’ve gotten off the wake and feel you’re at or almost at the peak of your jump, go through the same motions you did when doing this in the flats.
Lead the spin with your head by looking over your back shoulder. At the same time you begin to lead with your head, let go of the wrap handle with your front hand. This will put all the line tension into your back hand, which holds the handle. The line tension will naturally spin you in the direction it’s pulling from. The combination of leading with your head and allowing the line tension to “unwind” you will finish the spin.
