Well, How do you get the massive pop on reentry's? Is it all ollie power, or is there a technique?

The huge ones are either a double or triple up. Just ride over the first rollers and smack the 2nd or 3rd.

Think about popping off the toes on your back foot if its frontside. Kinda works for me. After you get that, throw a straight backflip in it, tantrum style. Way easier than youd think.

Sorry, I guess I'm not hip. What is a "reentry"? Is that a new trick off the double up?

Damn old farts! Ha kidding.

Its when a rider jumps off the wake and lands on the same wake.

it originally comes from Surfing. It's not an "off the lip to air" either. It's when you are riding a wave (fairly fast up the middle of the wave) and hit the lip as it curls into white wash as you get air (timing is everything). Then you come back down into the wave/white wash...Which is a re-entry. Not sure I explained it the technical way, but that's the way I knew of while surfing and growing up in Hawaii.

Yes, it's all the above: Speed, Ollie, and hitting it just right. Really sick looking when you kick your back leg out a little to tweak it.

Hope that helps where it originally came from

get at the bottom of the trough and drift up and feel the energy of the wake. 3/4 to the lip pop off the tail and use the energy of the wake. it will throw you right up.

helps if you throw a little spin in it as you leave the lip
