THE HEELSIDE BACKROLL
The heelside backroll is a beginning flip and should not be tried without special training and adherence to safety principles. Hit the wake and simultaneously drop the handle for slack during landing. Lean the body back as you lanch from the wave and carve away from the boat. This will start the body rotating, as shown in photo 2. Suck in the legs to increase rate of rotation. The body should be inverted at least by the high point in the jump (photos 3 and 4). Spot the landing (photo 5) and quickly extend and absorb (photo 6).
