Nicholas - Do you have any video? Under rotation could be caused by several things, but I'm guessing you might not be loading the line correctly. Post up some video and that would help.

Eubanks is right. The line should do most all of this trick for you. Make sure you are holding your edge and riding all the way through the top of the wake. Don't throw this trick until you feel the pop. The rotation should happen if you have edged and popped correctly.

Try and get a video - just one more thing to throw in there is you might be opening up too soon and slowing/stopping your rotation.

I have a question backroll related. I always end up doing Mexican Backrolls and i want to throw them normal. What are some tips to get me doing normal backrolls.

How beneficial are wake camps for progressing? I have stagnated for the last 2 years or so and would like to get over the hump to start getting some positive sets in and to see some progress. So I'm thinking about taking some lessons but don't really have more than a day to spare due to my work schedule. Any suggestions on camps up in Northern California? Anywhere from the Delta up to Oroville / Shasta works for me.
