I tried this trick a few trips ago and got it. I am just not pleased with my pop. I sometimes get great pop and really gets me around, but most times I end up shorting it, and butt check it. Not to mention that it looks really ugly. Other than the first one, the rest were taken the first day I got it. So I know Im not holding the handle in on them. I think it is how I am hitting the wake. I think that maybe when I am shorting it, that I am keeping too hard of an edge through the wake, and missing my pop. Yesterday, I got to try it a time or two, and seemed as when I got more over my board at the wake, I was able to get a little more height and rotation. Check it out, and give me some input, thanks...

i agree with brady. if you watch mike mclin on learnwake.com he has progressive edge pushes through the wake while letting his lead knee up to his chest then initiates the rotation at the peak of his height. your rotation is almost a tantrum.you may be throwing you head to the right instead of throwing your head down towards your right hip.try a more progressive edge instead of your raley approach.good luck

didnt read the comments. probably already been mentioned but if not. youre opening your left shoulder. it needs to stay closed and in line with your board. also weight your toes more. all of your weight is out the back on your heels and butt. this is actually a super easy trick and you can probably clean yours up with just a few tries.

^ I agree...your shoulder is opening up bigtime...forcing you to lay out a little.

Here's mine: http://vimeo.com/14460376

I always focus on sucking my forward knee up into my chest, getting pleanty of pop, and rotating over my led shoulder, but not behind it.
I'd also suggest slowing down a little and trying to get a little more pop, rather than such a hard and fast charge
