i cant seem to go wake to wake on jumps. could it be because my yamaha ar210 boat doesnt have enough wake (but I have a tower!!!!). Please help. all advice wanted and needed.

You have to work on your heelside cut.... make sure u can get enough speed to jump wake to wake. Also, when coming at the wake keep your arms extended, once u start riding up the wake, pull your arms and handle into your chest, it'll give you some more pop. But once u get wake to wake 1 time, you'll have it forever.

make sure you fully extend your legs off the wake to get maximum pop. just work on you edging and lean into it more

hey dude all of us had that problem one time, all u gotta do is do cut out 15 -20 feet out (or where ever you feel comfortable) start a progressive edge into the wake (dont hit the wake flat alsways at an angle) and when you are at the bottom of the wake push down with ur legs and at the top extend your legs streaght and you will get it. jus be pashent and have fun glad to help ya. peace

Ive tried these tips, but all I seem to get is more heighth,not distance......any other ideas??

You're right you will get more air this way. But if you combine that followed by nicks advice of getting more speed you'll have no choice but to clear w2w. Remember if you're going for w2w, good hieght is nothing without speed, good speed is nothing without hieght. And always keep trying. NOBODY gets good without practice.

BALLAST!!!! or shorten rope

Yeah i just got over that problem this weekend. You just gotta edge all the way to the wake.

shorten the rope to 50 ft including the handle and then you should clear it without a problem

I agree with the shortening of the rope approach. Once you can clear the wake with a few feet to spare, let the rope out another 5 feet. Keep doing that until you can clear at your desired length. If you learn both heelside and toeside at the same time before lengthing, it will make it easier than having to shorten the rope to make toeside later. Just my 2 cents.

just think of your boat as a giant yamaha waverunner cause its jet propelled. it's not going to create the same wake as a Malibu, Mastercraft or SAN.
