Advice appreciated
I have been going w2w at 50' pretty easy. How do I get there at 60'? My speed is 22mph. and you can tell how big I am. What do I need to adjust on my technique?

This is me at 50' and my first time overjumping the wake and landing in the flats. I wasn't ready to land in the flats, which resulted in me wrecking.

This is what I am consistently doing at ease.

When u hit the wake stand more tall and you'll get the pop, your edge looks good, though wobbly you have that down. Keep rope close to hips and shoulders back so when you land u have the slack, landing in the flats is def more of a jolt on that glaaaassssss

Thanks, I will keep going at 50' until I consistenly land in the flats and get use to it. The water was definitely glass that day, just the way I like it.

Dont drop your butt, relax a bit, keep your hips and shoulders up and back straight. You're also flattening off at the wake. You should roll onto your edge less aggressively and build it as you approach the wake. To do it at 60'... do it at 60 ft...

Don't worry about getting into the flats before you make it longer, do it toeside, then make the rope longer
