Pushing your shoulder up to the direction of the wake is one way to make your jumps high, too Smile

Honestly no, that's about the worst thing you could do. Let the wake be the energy that sends you flying, not your body. Snowboarding and wakeboarding are completely opposite in this one area.

Ok cool, one video i watched described a pumping like motion and I was trying it and it didn't really seem to add much. Thanks for the help.

You just want to stand tall at the wake. Stand tall and do not let your knee absorb into your chest.

And also do a search on here for "higher jumps" or "more pop." There are many.
