The Blind Judge is a HS Air Raley to Blind (BS 180). Start out with a normal HS Raley, but don’t let your handle get too stretched out beyond your chest level.
Do not rush for the blind rotation. Pull the handle towards your hip and initiate your rotation only as your handle gets closer to your front hip. The key to this trick is not to rotate with your shoulders but with your hip, which is a common problem with over or under rotation on this trick.
As your land, keep your weight over to your TS edge. This trick is more commonly landed without a handles pass in the air.
