Hey all...I am having trouble with my 3's I can not get any pop off the wake. I do go wake to wake just fine but I would like to pop off wake 1 and get the 3 down. I know the progressive edge stuff, but it seems that I absorb the wake and fly across the wakes with slight air. Help.

just edge all the way through the wake and spin when you are at the highest point in your jump...pop...pull..pass

you might be edging too hard...my big issue with landing my first 3 was that I had my cut WAY too hard, which increases line tension like a bitch right in the middle of the wake (when you should initiate your spin). Still take a progressive cut, but lessen the intensity (its a spin), and focus on extending through the wake. THIS DOES NOT MEAN LEVEL OFF, YOU WILL EAT IT. Just take a medium-to-easy progressive cut, and focus on pushing off. Matt is very correct in breaking it down into three parts. It should be three seperate motions (in your head).
