k, first let me start off with 3 years back, I almost drowned while riding a friends wakeboard on my first time out. It's taken me a good amount of grapes to get out and try to conquer my fear of hitting the water again like that and I'm getting fairly good and it.

I started trying to jump W2W my last trip out and couldn't do it. Came home and read up on here. I need progressive edge all the way to the wake, and to stand tall at the top. I'm really working on a progressive edge.. and I know I'm not getting it right since I'm losing line tension halfway to the wake almost every time. The 2 times I did have line pressure all the way to the wake, I also noticed alot more spray and I cleared the wake nicely.

I just can't seem to be consistant, and as the day progressed, I got tired and was not even coming close.

heres some vids of me today, trying again to clear the wake.. and I come close. What can I do to get that last 1foot of distance, more edge? Am I not standing up hard enough off the wake?

Any tips would be greatly appreciated, and if anything you can get a good chuckle at my video attempts.
