Hey there,

for a longer period I'm working hardly on the BJ and now I'm getting pretty desperate, because I can't figure out, where I'm doing the decisive fault. :-?

I pop out for a raley,
at the apex of the jump I start bringing the bar to my front hip and getting into the rotation,
let the backhand go away from the bar
but... if I turn my back to the kite completely, the bar gets ripped out of ma hand and I land the trick without the bar once again :(

Anyone here who knows how to fix that problem

I've got a similar problem to yours, but not landing it for a completely different reason.
I complete the whole move fine, but make the pass too late, often just as i'm hitting the water, but sometimes a bit later.
I've tried and tried and tried... Its so annoying :)

What happens to your kite after it gets ripped out of your hand? Is it flying upwards or downwards into the water ?
What kite are you using? Airpasses with hybrids can be tricky. Are you getting slack from your kite?

Video's and photo's always help, if you have any

Kite prob needs to be lower, make sure you are lit and edge hard enough against it to slack it. Without power it wont be as easy, paradoxically. Keep your arms in and near your waist.

Been trying for ages too. My railey to blind probably wasn't strong enough when I started and so a lot of the time has effectively been working on working on being able to landing those after popping harder and getting extra height.

Anyway, I did have a stage when I was having the bar ripped out of my front hand during the rotation. It particularly happened on my 7 (which is a hybrid) and I eventually decided that it was caused by being more powered than I could handle (and probably also by having the kite too high). I've solved it by riding with the kite less a little less powered (and lower) and working hard on generating more board speed to pop rather than relying so heavily on the kite. Maybe worth looking at...

I'm pretty much there now but not quite nailed one yet.

Ok - from my answer it's probably just the kite too high bit then!

Thanks Consumer - I'll try that myself. When I've got really good height and been going for the bar with loads of time to spare I've sometimes struggled to reach the bar so finding a way to get a extra slack would be good.

I'm really sorry that I haven't got photos of this.

To the kite... it depends, sometimes the kite heads to the water, sometimes there is no change of direction. But the most annoying part of it is...that I nearly get a piece of the bar, but I end up having one hand on the leash :roll:

I think that there is slack, but not that much :-?

p.s. I use North Vegas kites

UNLOCK your mind!!!go super fast and with your kite at 45 or a bit less(create momentum so you'll be faster from your kite when you pop).Dont strech too much in the railey and keep your bar under your head.Pop as hard as you can.When you see that youre enough high and speedy dont think at all just go for the pass.It will happen magicaly.

Speed and height are allies for all the wakestyle tricks.

I need to give you an update,

had a great session a few days ago.

At a point I was feeling very confident, when I went for the 5th or 6th BJ of the sesh,
but in that BJ I could really feel, how I managed to bring the bar near to my hip and finished the pass :D

Although I had to take a crah, cause I couldn't stick the landing :lol:

A real blind judge which is from wake boarding is a raley to blind. You don't have to pass the bar. Start there and get it down first. After you can consistently land blind then pass after the landing take it a little bigger and go for the pass.
