I went out for the second time this year and I attempted the back roll numerous times and I just could not hold on to the handle (although, I did sometimes just let go for no reason). I was able to land these easily last year, but I haven't landed one yet this year.

I would like to know what I am doing wrong/right and how I can get this trick landed the next time I'm out! Here is a video of some of my attempts:






Thanks!

Everything up through the landing actually looks good. But you're letting the handle get away from you! Keep both hands on it if you need to but keep the handle in. In the landing below you can see it's high and more towards the middle of your body instead of low and closer to your lead hip.

Finally landed it tonight. Of course, it was when I didn't really try on it, it just sort of happened lol.

WhackedRampage, Sweet! That's sometimes the best thing you can do. I learn more tricks by just throwing them. Over-thinking can give you mental blocks.
