Heres a pic of me going wake 2 wake from my last weeks vacation. The pic is of poor quality because I took a picture of a the original picture to get it on to the computer. If any one has any constructive critism I'd appreciate it. The boat I'm behind in this one is a GTX-4 Tech by sea-doo.

that's the worst picture I've ever seen. We might get a better idea if you just describe the jump!

You're joking right? This makes that "Golden Retreiver" tantrum picture posted a while back look like a professional job. The only constructive thing I can say about it is buy a scanner.

Hahaha! Alex, I commend you for trying to post a pic so the rest of us have something to look at while we're supposed to be working or whatever. But, you have to admit, that pic is really really bad. I can barely even make it out. That's too funny.

Alright Alex, I'll try and give you a little feedback, but it'll really hard considering the pic.

It looks as though you're not very balanced in the air, which could be a result of having your handle away from your waist when you're hitting the ramp. Try to keep the handle tucked beside your waist, and you'll be more stable in the air.

Or then again, you could have 12 feet of air with perfect balance doing some sick grab, but I can't tell for the life of me!

I wasn't sure you could get worse than Leo's golden ret. throwing down that tantrum, but now I'm sure you can.

Alex, sorry for bustin your balls but it's hard to give you constructive criticism with a picture like this. I can see a water line, horizon line, what looks to be a rope in the middle, and what I can only assume is a wakeboarder in the middle that may be going a little off access. But we get nothing of the wake, which direction you're jumping, how and where you're holding the handle...kinda hard to help without any clue of what's actually going on in the picture.

if you want to try taking a picture of a picture, try putting it on the floor and taking the picture from alot farther away, looks like it was too close for the camera to focus. should come out much better that way.
from what i can tell, it looks like your squatted over a little and maybe leaning a bit too far forwards and to your right. the board is at almost a 45 degree angle, so you should probably try putting a little more weight on your leading foot and make sure you edge all the way up the wake...the two biggest mistakes most people make are not edging up all the way and also not holding the handle at their hip.

I didn't see the Golden Retriever pic the first it went around. This pic had me laughing out loud...too bad I'm at work.

Sorry, Leo...I'm laughing WITH you not AT you :-)

Clint - I would say you have to much weight on your back foot. Also try to keep the handle closer to you hip.

Shawn - I have to disagree. To me, it appears that Clint isn't spotting his landing

Christie - As you can see hes landing blind, so its a little hard to spot the landing. But I can agree to disagree.

That blacked out photo rules!

A picture is worth a 1000 words even when it is all black!
