I can't seem to land the Backroll, I can get around perfectly but always end up slipping out during the landings. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Rotation is great, and getting good air. Almost there!

Don't go out as wide, about 2/3 the distance. This will force you to keep a strong edge through the wake. Don't edge out twice, like now after coasting you edge out a bit again. Edge out, coast, edge in super progressively and very important: standing tall! See how bend over you are half way your edge. Stand tall from coasting 'till leaving the wake. Stick it, ride away and freak out. Post video Smile
