I'm aware of all the elements of a good w2w jump...smooth progressive edge, handle in and at hips, edge all the way through the wake, extend legs. I have a great progressive edge, but my problem is extending my legs WHILE staying on edge. Some jumps my timing is perfect and I get that smooth pop that delivers height and distance(and a clean stalefish), but other jumps I'm lacking the height and I notice when I land I'm on a a strong heelside edge out into the flats. And since we all know how you take off is how you land, my problem is I'm leaning back too far. I'm sorta confused because traditionally the progressive edge means that the hardest part of your cut should be right before you hit the wake to keep the line taught. but in my case would it make since to let off a little bit to focus on getting my hips out in front of me? What do you guys focus on right before you hit the wake?
