Just looking for some quick pointers about getting height. I've got the w2w dialed in, but they aren't nearly as high as I'd like.

Anything besides standing tall and really focusing on popping at the top of the wake to get more height?

Thanks!

Line load. Do you know what that means? Chances are you could be loading up much more than you are...but Alan is right, it's hard to say without seeing you ride.

From what I understand, you want max load on the line as you're edging up the wake, right?

I'll get some vids this weekend, the water was so rough yesterday the camera was shaking like a mad man.

I know I'm standing tall, but perhaps not popping the legs straight enough or at the right time.

Yeah, it could be a number of things. Once you get some video together we should be able to help you troubleshoot.

Here's another question. What type of line do you use? If you don't use a Spectra of some sort, spend the money!

Also, remember this, height is determined by energy. The more energy you put into your edge, the higher you go. So, if you are riding at a slow speed, bumping this up a few tenths might help. Just need to change your timing a little for popping off the top.
