Hello,
So, I've started wakeboarding several weeks ago since my dad got a jet ski. I wakeboard 1 time a week ( I don't have a driving license for the jet/boat and have to go to the places where we're not checked). Anyways, I've learned some things like surface spins and all the one hand riding thing, and some swich riding, but I'm having problems with jumping, it's seems that for me it's impossible to jump a wake, even though my boyfriend did it, so in theory so should I. Is it harder to jump a wake when being pulled by quite light jetski? I've watched several tutorials on getting more air and lenght, but even though I think I'm doing it all as said I still don't go all over. I would really like to get some tips on that.

Another question I would like to ask is what tricks can I do going behind a jet ski? Is there any possibility of stuff like inverts, rolls or at least grabs? I suppose it's enough air time for 180, but is there enough for 360s? And any interesting surface tricks?

This is one of my runs last weekend (my third time wakeboarding) in which I'm doing most of the stuff I've learned so far. I'd really appreciate any tips on my stance, riding and technique. We dont have certified instructors where I live (Lithuania) and I don't really want to pay over 100 eur/30min to people who don't really know if they're doing it right themselves. Sorry for the quality, the filming conditions were hard .

Thanks for your help in advance
