OCT/NOV 2018 | Come Correct – Stalefish Tantrum to Blind with Tony Carroll
Grab and poooooooke!
Words: Tony Carroll // Photos: Mathis
Do: Make a nice wide cut out and take a progressive edge into the wake. Make sure you’re edging all the way to the top of the wake.
Don’t: Edge hard, let off and edge hard again.
Do: Stop on your front foot a little more than you would on a regular tantrum to blind. This will help you get the grab easier.
Don’t: Forget to square up to the wake!
Get the grab
Do: Start going for the grab on the way up. It’ll help to suck your knees to your butt so you don’t have to reach as far.
Don’t: Grab tail-fish…ever!
Do: Keep the handle right to the small of your back, look over your back shoulder, bend your knees and spot your landing.
Don’t: Land stiff legged or else you’re going to hurt yourself.
