5 ft or so 06-18-2001 10:56 AM

Anyone who can help: <BR> <BR>I don't have much trouble getting good vertical height (5 ft or so), and I can also get good horizontal distance (clear the wake by 2ft or so into the flats), but I have trouble with both at the same time. <BR> <BR>Seems if I scream in, I get very little height, but clear the wake easily, or if I ease in I get great pop, but usually land on top of the far wake and don't make it into the curl. <BR> <BR>Every once in a while, I can do both, but not consistently. <BR> <BR>I am 6 ft 1 in, and weigh 185. I have a buddy that is 5 ft 7in and weighs like 155 or 160. He is like a &amp;*^#%$ bird. Wish I was. <BR> <BR>Any advice appreciated.

John, <BR>On your approach that gets you high but not across...try adding just a pinch more edge about a foot before the bottom of the wake and carry it through. If you're doing that already, accelerate into the wake just a bit harder? <BR> <BR>On your approach that takes you far but not high...first off, make sure you're not easing up on your edge, we all know what that does. If you've got a hard edge already, try standing tall through the wake just a little earlier than you do now and pull that handle down to your hips with your triceps as you leave the wake. BOOM! If that doesn't work, try only 80% to 90% of your acceleration? Hope this helps!
