The lip role

This is what I call a manoeuvre of last resort. You've got plenty of speed but your going to be too late to make the section and want to do something to finish off the wave. Following a hard bottom turn climb the face at a lesser angle then when doing an aerial. Hit the lip almost parallel to it and twist your body to start rolling. Land backwards at the bottom of the wave and lean forward to prevent the tail digging in. Slide the nose around either way depending on how your balanced.
