Old    5 ft or so            06-18-2001, 10:56 AM Reply   
Anyone who can help:

I don't have much trouble getting good vertical height (5 ft or so), and I can also get good horizontal distance (clear the wake by 2ft or so into the flats), but I have trouble with both at the same time.

Seems if I scream in, I get very little height, but clear the wake easily, or if I ease in I get great pop, but usually land on top of the far wake and don't make it into the curl.

Every once in a while, I can do both, but not consistently.

I am 6 ft 1 in, and weigh 185. I have a buddy that is 5 ft 7in and weighs like 155 or 160. He is like a &*^#%$ bird. Wish I was.

Any advice appreciated.

John,
On your approach that gets you high but not across...try adding just a pinch more edge about a foot before the bottom of the wake and carry it through. If you're doing that already, accelerate into the wake just a bit harder?

On your approach that takes you far but not high...first off, make sure you're not easing up on your edge, we all know what that does. If you've got a hard edge already, try standing tall through the wake just a little earlier than you do now and pull that handle down to your hips with your triceps as you leave the wake. BOOM! If that doesn't work, try only 80% to 90% of your acceleration? Hope this helps!
