So ive been boarding for a year and a half now and I have gotten a lot of tricks down but I just have never consistently gotten wake to wake. I always feel like I am edging through the wake and edging hard enough, but i usually only get about 3 quarters of the way through. I was wondering if its safe to blame it on riding without a tower or if I am just not doing something right. I just feel that consistently going wake to wake will open a whole new bag of tricks so any advice is great. Thanks

sorry to say but its deffinately your technique. i learned all the basics and my first invert(scarecrow) without a tower or a pole and no weight on a private lake that was only 4 feet deep so the wake was absolutely the smallest possible. i would recomend finding a local pro or outlaw rider and pay them for a day of lessons. youll be surprised how much you can bennifit

you've never seen restrospect. the big wakes we ride today are like a crutch almost. most cats don't have the fundamentals down. *myself included. but big wakes are fun as hell!!

BTW can't you get a pole for a couple hundie?

I agree with jason, get a pro or go to a school. Thats what I did and since then i have gotten w2w with every jump as before i could only get 3/4 or so and was inconsistent. It really pays off.

yah i learned my first invert (backroll) behind my 17 foot boat connected to the eye hook no weight other than 2 people. w2w was never an issue, granted i had been wakeboarding behind jetskis and other regular i/o boats for about 8 years before i landed my first invert, but w2w should be no prob. a wakeboard boat is a lot easier, but i almost think i benefitted from learning on a small wake because i think im relatively fundamentally solid now behind my launch. big air universal pylons are $310 shipped brand new, google it.

ride with local people on the lake that look somewhat good, you dont even have to pay...or ask someone if you can tag along if u know of some good people that have a good boat, see what its like and learn from them, i mean i take people i dont know all the time i love promoting our sport.
