well if you can, post a video of you attempting and it would be a lot easier to point out the problem. <BR> <BR>How are you falling? Over your toes? Slipping out?

Is the rope pulling your forward?

i am also new to the sport and don't know how to get big air? i don't know if it is b/c of the boat, rope length, or speed? Any help would be nice. <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

body position is extremely important, make sure your hips are in front of your shoulders. this will keep you fromt getting pulled over your toes

If I had to guess, I would say you are flattening out at the wake. You may be turn too quickly toward the wake and getting pulled off your edge at the wake and do not even realize it. Try slowing your initial cut to the wake, keep the rope low (belly button or so), maintain a gradual edge to and through the wake. DO NOT JUMP for the board, simply keep you legs rigid or think of standing of the wake, but DO NOT JUMP. The rope tension you build and the wake (no matter the size) will do the rest. Also keep both hands on the handle. The gradual edge to the wake will help you maintain good body position and keep you from being pulled off edge. Build your edge as you become more comfortable. Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.
