Chris,
Looks good! You've definitely got the basic ideas right... couple suggestions:
1) Commit to a little bit more aggresive edge (you want to set a good edge early and hold it all the way through the wake)
2) Get a bit lower in order to get a better 'pop' off the lip ( it looked like you were standing tall and absorbing alotta the 'kick' you need to get good air) let the wake push you up, and your momentum from the cut carry you sideways

** NOTE ** There are few things sweeter in this world than sticking your first smooth w2w jump. Keep at it, and good luck.

i think you should shorten the rope up a little bit, youre getting pretty good distance its just the wake at that point is really wide.

That or increase the boat speed a little.

And also try and keep on your edge just a fraction longer, your letting off just a little bit when you are about to pop off.

Make sure to stand tall as you come up the wake and launch. Its kinda stiff legged yes. Because when you come up with your legs bent and nnot in a strong holding position your legs will absorb all of the pop. So yes stand tall and keep your legs strong

1) Start with your knees bent and keep them bent all the way through your cut
2) Cut at the wave as hard as you can from as far as you can outside the wave.
3) Don't slow down at all befor hitting the wave and when you do jump up a little bit
4) To get more air bring the handle down and pull it to you
