Im 29 years old and i have been boarding off and on through the years i quit for 6 years and have never had a boat so i only got to go a few times a summer. I learned tantrums and backrolls when i was 18 and i never even learned to ride switch.. now i have my own boat im trying to get the basics down. plus i have a runabout and no tower so basics are all i can really do. switch hs 180s and toe side 180s are learned.. just learning to go ts w2w
The problem is I cant land any of my inverts im guessing since my towpoint is so low im not getting enough hang time
heres a video of me last summer behind a bayliner with a tower.. not much wake. about the third day riding after 6 years i might add..

Just wait for the pop and you'll stick 'm behind your own boat. Now you're throwing them super early (=low). Also stand a bit taller for backroll and less speed coming into the wake. _________________ FlyZone Wakeboarding Costa Rica
When I started riding I had no tower and landed inverts. Besides standing tall at the wake, if you trim that motor up a little bit more you will get rid of some of that whitewash. The wake behind my boat is peakiest right at the point where the whitewash disapears, but before the bow bounces. If your bow starts bouncing before the whitewash goes away (probably what is happening to you) go ahead and shift some weight up front.
You are also edging in really quickly, that usually makes it harder to pop off the wake. Especially on the backroll come in slower and gradually build the edge up.
