Hey Mike. <BR> <BR>It would depend on the trick, but just a wake jump...generally I look straight across to the shore at the same angle as my cut. If I need less line tension, I look more toward the boat. If I need the line tension, I look further away from the boat.

My hull is narrow so I always land in the flats. I think I just spot my landing if I'm just going w2w or doing simple 180s.

at the wake when I set an edge, then shore <BR> <BR>Mike, let out some rope.

Ever ride behind a '76 - '81 Nauti? Too steep at the back.

many thanks...I wasn't quite sure (looked down while landing and did a face plant / black eye)

Usually at the girls on my boat <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>Probably why I crash a lot too!

My son went to wakeboard camp and they told him to keep his eyes on the top of the tower and his chest up. Seems to work for him. <BR> <BR>Remember: Look down, fall down.<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>
