nice attempt! just wait a tad longer and stay on edge, then it's money!

jman 08-21-2008 10:02 PM

right on. regular, mexican, who cares? maybe some people i guess. but you're right there, just need to stick it out on the landing. i've been trying them all summer and last summer, and i'm coming so close too. Good Job, keep going with it!

wakeslife 08-21-2008 10:12 PM

That wasn't all that mexican man! You'll get that soon for sure.

99xstar 08-22-2008 9:01 AM

Yeah dude. You look like you have it about nailed. Like Joe said, hold that edge all the way through the wake and you'll have it. In the 3rd to last pic, you are already bracing for a fall. Hold the edge and pop a little higher and you'll be in the comfortable landing position by that frame.

protag 08-22-2008 10:32 AM

You are doing the same mistake, I've been doing. Seems that you are not really edging progressively looking at the first 3 pics. On the first pic you are fully attacking the wake (lots of spray), but instead of holding that edge you are getting off too early. One way that helped me fix that was taking a shorter approach. This way you automatically edge harder towards the wake because you don't have as much time to gather speed. I am sure you'll stick it soon! Haven't landed one myself yet, but I am getting closer. <BR> <BR>The other thing you might want to try, is a tantrum. With your style of edging, you might actually find it easier. <BR> <BR>good luck!

romes 08-22-2008 10:48 AM

you're flatening off as you're coming up the wake. look at your sequence of pictures backwards. thats what you're cut should look like. <BR> <BR>it needs to be progressive. easy at first hard at the top of the wake, stand tall and your cut will do the work.

eas 08-22-2008 11:31 AM

wow...good catch jr! <BR> <BR>i was gonna say body position in pic 4 should match pic 3....meaning wait longer to initiate the roll. and whatever you do.....realize that a LOT of us are jealous of that flat delta water...man, that place is nice! keep it up...you'll get it.

ord27 08-22-2008 12:48 PM

exactly eric....jealous <BR> <BR>great shots Charley <BR>you almost have it! <BR> <BR>I am still having trouble getting the full rotation <BR> <BR>just to clarify guys.... <BR>when yall and all of the instructional videos say "stand tall"......you mean "tall" relative to the board and not "tall" relative to the horizon <BR> <BR>right? <BR>cause standing tall relative to the horizon would flatten the board out........

Vics looks money in that pic. No boats anywhere in site

romes 08-22-2008 1:52 PM

is there a crane on vics now? i havent ridden vics but once this summer. hahahah

99xstar 08-22-2008 2:35 PM

Cliff - Yeah, to the board. Keep the tension.

norcalbordr 08-22-2008 3:03 PM

yeah, that crane is toward the end of Vics on the southbound side (going away from Union Point). I'm not sure what they are building. A wall of some sort

fredlap 08-22-2008 3:22 PM

two hands on the handle and it's done!!!!

romes 08-22-2008 3:23 PM

ps open your eyes...hehe

wakeeater 08-23-2008 2:53 AM

haha thanks guys for the pointers i shoulda posted up all the other attempts this was my closet one i think i was factoring in a fall from the start which is why i closed my eyes in the last couple frames i just remember hit the water and wondering why i was still moving. hopefully i'll get it maybe this weekend if we go out or next when im at pedro from labor day
