Stay in command when landing
When you land, don’t just give the handle to the boat so your arms are reaching forward. This will pull your weight over the front of the board and lead to the dreaded toeside edge catch. Instead, keep the handle in the same place it was when you left the wake. As you land, you can give a little tension to the boat, which makes for soft landings.
Josh Palma On Landing
— “Keep your chest and hips up and use your legs to help slow down your body on landings. This will take loads of pressure off your knees and back.”
— “Controlled landings begin in the air by spotting your landing early and staying oriented throughout the trick. Trampoline work helps sharpen these skills.”
— “Keep the handle close as you prepare to land a roll to revert. It will help you maintain your leverage against the boat and, consequently, your ability to land centered on your board.”
