I have been boarding for two summers and have not been able to get big air, I don't even think what I am getting qualifies as air. I ride behind a 1991 Bayline Capri with a tower. It throwns out a preety good wake so I can't blame it on the boat. Last year we started in late July so i didn't get much riding in. I was able to go across the wake and come back in, egde h/s and t/s. When we started again this year I really wanted to get better. So I tried to ride switch and do sideslides. It was really hard for me to push my board around because it was a 143. So I tried a different board that was a 136. I was doing very well on the 136 but felt that it was a little small. After riding both of these boards I was not getting any air. I think that I got about 8 inches and that was the best that I could do. Last week I purchased a new LF Fusion 139 and LF Alpha bindings. This setup is great it is easy to push around in the water. I can now do sideslides, ride switch (for a little while), do backslides, and get about a foot of air. I have watched the instructional videos and talked to people on how to get more air, but every time I go up the wake I can't get any. I ride at about 22mph is that about right? Please tell me what I can do to get more air.
