So I finally decided to learn a raley. I have been wakeboarding for quite some time, and never really had the desire to learn the raley til now. I have several heelside and toeside inverts, and spins. I decided to take it to the wakeskate first. I got the feeling down pretty well, popping out and coming down on six to seven in a row. When I strapped on the board, I was so focused on edging all the way through the wake and keeping my hips in front of my shoulders, I never even got my hips back behind me in the air. I was riding at about 70 ft and 20 mph. My regular length and speed is 75 and 22. Should I take the skate back to my regular riding length and speed? When I strapped the board on, I was concerned about cutting too hard and not being able to time my pop off of the wake. So my question is: what should my body position be right at the wake? Arms fully extended out and legs straight? I know I should cut all the way through the wake, but should I release off of my toes to get my hips behind me? Any help would be appreciated.
