very new to wakeskating and was wondering if wake to wake jump is the same as with a wakeboard ?

any other tips would be appreciated.

thanks !!

When you cut into the wake make sure your toes are up and heels are down, and stay that way in the air so the board stays under your feet. When you hit the wake do your ollie and pop the board up and bring your legs up to your chest. It took me forever to land my first on & I couldn’t have done it without the “SNAP” DVD.

FYI – When you loose your board in the air, 90% of the time its flight path & landing have a connection to the back of your head. Read helmet instructions…

Ha ha - that ain't true. It flies behind you most of the time if you lose it mid air.

Like Jamie said though, "suck" the board up into your body...so to speak... after lift off. I'm not sold on the whole toes and heels suggestion though.

Also, you'll be better off on a wake that is not so peaky. Probably put a little more weight toward the bow of that 211 or just empty some for skating. You'll thank me later. lol
