I can get al the way across the wake no problem but sometimes it feels like the board is slipping out behind me in the air and i have to bring it down. How do i fix this. It doesnt happen all of the time mostly when i try to take a harder edge at the wake. <BR>Thanks <BR>Tyler

make sure you keep your arms bent like a dinosaur and keep the handle low and into your waist while your in the air as well as when you cut up to the wake. also when you cut in focus on keeping your edge while you ride up the wake.

Tyler- <BR>You are doing nothing wrong. From the sounds of it, you are edging through the wake as you are supposed to, although the handle could be high. Keep the handle low (belly button or so) and this could fix everything. As you continue to gain consistency with your edge into the wake you will no longer notice the board feeling like it is going out behind you. However, if the board going out under you is extreme simply relax your cut to the wake a bit and that should resolve your concerns. Any time you feel the board going out beneath you just push the handle down and this should get you feet back under you. Summary: Rope low, edge through the wake and land on other side. Keep riding hard and good luck.

When i rode this week i pulled my arms in and it helped alot. Felt lke i was getting higher off the wake and taking it farther out. I really didnt think that such a little thing could help so much. <BR>Thanks <BR>Tyler
