I am a noob and just tried wakesurfing for the first time last night. I was playing around trying to keep myself in the nice part of the wake and could get the rope to go slack a few times where i could toss it but it was very short lived. It seems as though i cant keep in the sweet spot and fall too far back in the wake. Does this mean I need more weight or just more practice on the board? Here are the specs of everything to give you an idea on the variables involved. I was playing around with leaning on the front of the board but it didn't seem to change quick enough to compensate for the speed loss.
Boat: 2003 wakesetter VLX
Weight: center bag full, floating wedge down, 750 on surf side in rear
Speed: 10.5 mph
Board: 5.0' Triple X Slasher Pro
