This is how it SHOULD BE. Sounds very "bait and switch" to me to make a board that looks exactly like the production board (graphics and all) but it's been lightened up or changed. Why even make a...

Varial Flip - Dom's MyWake Video

The entire video is great, but the v-flip happens at 1:51

By the way, the board he's using cost $350 when it's not on sale... This is living proof that skill is most of the equation.

Bingo.

It's a wake, so why not refer to it as one? If you say wave then you should call it wavesurfing and waveboarding and waveskating. It's all the same thing just done at different speeds.

+1 and it's all happening pretty close to the boat, often times past the high point in the wave. Maybe try only one good pump and then the air so you're still a little further back.

Hmm. Hard to say without the video really, it could be a combination of both. Assuming you're in the right spot, when you ride up the wave to air, does the nose come up real high over the lip? Or is...

I've never felt like I was going to launch and land in the boat. Maybe those were some powerful pumps and they just felt unnatural, which made you feel that way? How many pumps did it take you to...

Your pumps seemed to be dramatic (a lot of up, down, and out) without much momentum being gained. Quality pushes over quantity. The way you move on the board now shows you already have a good...

Expert or not, your advice is on the right track.

The bottom turn the OP is doing seems to be taking away the speed he generated. Plus, when you bottom turn that much before your air, you have to...

Since you added a fin to your skimboard, compare the bottom of it to the bottom of some wakesurf skimmers, I don't think you'd see much of a difference. If you're looking for stability try a bigger...
