I know Landon posted a topic pertaining to backroll tips but I feel that I have a different problem. I am much like Landon in the sense that I am the only one of my friends that is somewhat close to landing a backroll so I dont have anyone to give me any help. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

So close!

After edging out and coasting, start edging back in MUCH slower (less edge), then build up your edge progressively to have your strongest edge right at the wake. Pause your videos where you start your edge (strong edge) and where you hit the wake (board totally flat=zero edge). Reverse that.
Also start out less wide, closer to the wake. This will help with not flattening off before the wake. Use 2/3 of the distance you use in the videos.
Also, stand tall from before even starting your edge until you leave the wake. You hit it standing tall (good), but edge seated down a lot (bad).

You're also spinning a bit to revert. A proper edge will probably help, but also try to move the handle away from the wake when you land.

1 Less distance
2 Stand tall
3 Start your edge much mellower

4 make sure to get video and post back!

Thanks! Yeah one main thing i have noticed when i land is that my left foot is forward instead of my right foot. Maybe these corrections will help me straighten that out.

First focus on the other pointers, get the edge right. Then if necessary fix the landing.
Give it a shot and let us know how if went. Good luck!
