I've been riding for over 10 years behind the same boat and now I'm 18. I've upgraded all my equipment and have a nice board rope and pylon the only problem is I still don't get enough lift off the wake. Technique and strength aren't the problem. I landed a 360 last year and can do it still but can't land my tantrum because my hang time isn't enough. I still cant clear the wake. Whats the deal? I can do a backflip on flat ground so I dont think its athleticism. The other thing is I cant put ballasts in. Anything I can do?

Respectfully disagree. If your technique was good you'd clear the wake easily and have time to make a sandwich while you're up there. Landing a turbo-spin 360 doesn't mean your technique is good. If you can't consistently clear the wake it means you're probably really good at spinning quickly.
Post up some video for everyone to look at. You learn SO much by looking at video and comparing what you think you're doing to what you actually are doing back there. _________________
I honestly think it has to do with internet penetration...
Gonna need ballast in there if you can make it happen. Our second boat was a 2003 X-7 (essentially the 197) and it's got a good wake with a 500 in the very rear and a 300 along the engine on the port side (or just people in the boat, always rode with only my dad in the boat). Without ballast, not much you can do to be honest besides take a lot of people in the boat. Definitely post video if possible! Backflip on ground vs. proper pop for a tantrum are two totally different things, the help on the forum is great, you'll be getting quality help!
