These five pics are in sequence of me working on w2w. What is most obvious to me is that it looks as if I'm absorbing the wake with my knees. I'm landing just short of the other side, not much air underneath me. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3184/191454.jpg" alt=""> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3184/191455.jpg" alt=""> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3184/191456.jpg" alt=""> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3184/191457.jpg" alt=""> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3184/191458.jpg" alt="">

It looks like you have a good edge through the wake, you just need to stand tall at the top of the wake to get a little extra height. Cut out 15 to 20 feet, then wait a few seconds so the rope gets tight again. Then cut in slow and start squatting as you approach the wake. Keep accelerating the whole way in to build up rope tension and start standing tall about a second before you hit the wake. When you hit the wake make sure your legs are almost fully extended (you don't need to jump, just stand tall and keep the rope low). Remember when you're in the air do not keep your legs locked fully extended, bend them a little in the air so the landing doesn't cause you to fall or injure your knees.

one last thought: you probably know thatis, but if you keep the handle near your front hip, give or take a little height, you shouldn't have any problems with falling off of straight if you leave with both feet weighted well...keep that in mind when you decide to go for it. It should help with going big as well.
