Why can't I get any pop? I can clear the wake but with no air. How do these guys get some much air. I see guys pulling 360's getting up, the boat hasn't even reach speed yet. I heard edging all the way through the wake but some people say start to flatten out right before the wake?? Also do you hit the wake as perpendicular to the boat as possible or??? When do you stand tall or push off the wake? Do you just push off with your back foot like an olie? thanks.

It's not all about speed and you definately dont want to cut completely perpindicular to the wake unless you are trying to kick your board out behind you for a raley or glide. You need to cut into the wake and at the very top of the wake stand tall, dont squat. The resistance you create with your legs against the wake is what causes you to get pop. Once you get comfortable with that you can try more of an olie motion.
