I keep flipping low and fast-relying just on the wake to flip me over- do you concentrate on getting straight up then when I get the air throw the flip ? I can get a nice pop on wake jumps but I think I am thinking too much about letting go and changing my ege that I am losing the big pop.

then concentrate more on the pop. Dont start your rotation until you feel it... Going off the wake you should jump like u want to go straight up.

Don't think too much about changing your edge. Concentrate on 1) cutting out wide 2) building a lot of speed into the wake 3) letting go with your rear hand and squaring up at the very last moment - just before you ride up the wake 4) jumping straight up by extending your legs 5) just tilting - not throwing!! - your head backwards 6) landing it with a big grin.

!!! Your take off shold feel like someone pulling your legs away from underneath you, a strange feel of tripping. You should get awesome pop which shoots you up high in the air. The rotation should be nice and slow. Good look !!!
