    I've just started throwing front rolls and they all look like this. Any tips? Hopefully something will click and I can add more height and style.

    Agree with Jay. Your handle position is off. You are letting your arms out after takeoff which really messes with your rotation and line tension in the air. Just keep the handle in your lap whole way through and it will work itself out. Right hip on landing will stop you from coming in off axis.

    Thank you both for the tips! I'll work on it some more this weekend and hopefully will have some good news to report back.

    Your getting good height and distance. Just a couple little tweaks with your arms and you have it.
