Can anyone give Tips/Exercises on how to better stand tall when hitting the wake. I always feel like I am hauling ass when I approach the wake and think I am standing tall but clearly looking at my video I am not. I can get wake to wake pretty easy but feel it is more due to speed then elevation. Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance
Lets start with the positive for healside your chest is pointed up and you are showing the bottom of your board to the boat when you jump. For negative you are cutting out way to far only cut out half way just past the spray line. Also cut out and pause for a little bit and and sit more almost as far as in a chair then start your cut in. Look at the top of the wake and when you get a boards length away stand up like you are trying to do the first bounce on a trampoline.
Toeside there are 2 sides to the wake start jumping toeside you don't want to be a healside hero. Cut out and stand in a tall position put weight over your toes evenly start cutting in and then bend you knees slightly while cutting in hold the edge through the top of the wake while standing tall. _________________ There'll be two dates on your tombstone/ And all your friends will read 'em/ But all that's gonna matter is that little dash between 'em...
