Looks good dude, try and work on your toeside as much as your heelside though .

Wake looks huge, what boat you riding behind ?

toeside brotha, thats what you need to do. you have great basics and you seem to have good edge control on your hs. start going out and focous on ts. just ride at least one set a day where you do hs ts hs ts and learn to tie it all in. you will be amazed how everything starts to come together when you open the ts of the wake up.

start taking that hs 1 w2w and the start grabbing it. b roll looks sick try to grab that also.

Thanks for the suggestions.
Nick, what do you mean by edge? I could edge harder on the 180's but I am just getting the feel. That is the next step. How is my edge in the last minute of the video?
Nick and Bryan thanks for the feedback on ts...

Any suggestions on how to get more comfortable with ts??? I don't go for W2W much ts because i case the landing. Should i shorten the line and just do ts for a session to get the feel? What ts tricks would be good to start out with?

Nick, its an 09 malibu wakesetter 23' LSV

Damn man, that wake is mackinn!!
I'd work on that toeside. Maybe shorten the rope, ride a bit slower, and just get the hang of it. Then just take a few sets and do what Bryan was talking about and go hs ts hs ts. Once you get that TS down, your sets will just kind of flow. As far as heelside goes, just try and focus on edging all the way through the wake. Lookin sick, good job!

I'd work on finding some flat water, the wind was pushing 20 mph yesterday, and it was perfectly flat here.

don't use a one-wake switch 180 as a crutch. Focus on toeside, and don't let up till you are landing them W2W consistently. It will improve your riding 100%.

Less Carl Orff, more Toeside W2W

Thanks for the suggestions.

Keep them coming. Any help with learning ts would be great and what tricks to start with 1st ts.

Thanks!

dave, for ts start from about 5 feet and try to get the feel holding your edge all the way up and through the wake. if you start small and get the feel you can move out farther and farther and eventually turn it into a ts w2w. you need to start small and get the feel first. what helped me was handle placement. placing the handle on or near my leading hip helped to stay balanced through the wake and at takeoff. hope this helps. just keep at it. you'll get the feel.

Dont take offense, but I can't stand it when people learn HS spins or inverts before they can even go TS W2W.

Use the progression tree... baby step it up until you can go W2W. Focus on maintaining your edge on TS landings... slipping out is the #1 reason for falls IMO.
