I can get up and surf all day holding onto the rope but as soon as I let go I lose momentum and sink. The longest I've been able to go without the rope is about 10 seconds.
I always wait until the rope doesn't have tension and then let go, but then I just sink. I seem to be in the right place and can speed up by pressuring the front on the board but then the nose dives about half of the time.
Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
Boat: 2005 Malibu VLX; center tank full and I've tried one and both rear tanks full with people sitting on on the transom. Tried with and without wedge. Have not filled the bow tank based on what I've been told.
