w2w took me a lot of time (and patience) to figure it out as well. I normally ride at around 65 ft and 19.3 mph, but when Im trying new stuff I go way shorter (for w2w stuff) and slower.
I suggest you do the following:
Go very long at first. Go 75-80 ft and you can go at 18 mph or what you feel very comfortable (as in not scary) in. Try doing some nice one wake jumps without cutting out so far before edging in. Try to get good at edging. Remember its not about speed, so take it slow. Keep your handle close to your body, about waist high. your body should be tall, not bent and your butt shouldnt be out. Your shoulders should be behind your knees. Start your progressive edge by turning the board towards the wake. Remember its not about squatting down, you have to get some board angle. Once you get the hang and are landing in the middle or more of the wakes, go very short. Try 50-55 ft. You can go really slow and I promise you will clear the wake. I know its going to look ridiculous to try to go w2w at that length, but trust me, it helps.
You dont have to cut out so far, you wont need to go so fast to clear the wake. This will get you set up for the feeling of landing on the "other side" and it boosts up your confidence so much. I got whiplash once from trying ts w2w and I didnt want to try it again. Dean Lavelle taught me with this technique and it really helped. Mostly in building confidence in myself that I could do it.
Once you've done the short rope, you can gradually start adding some more length and speed. Do it as you feel comfortable. People have this idea that the longer your rope and the faster you go, the better rider you are. But it is not about that, do what feels good, because if you feel good youll be progressing. It is no use to ride at 75 ft going 21.5 mph if you're too afraid to try new things and progress. And if you feel the need to go back to shorter and slower, do it!
I may have missed some things here, but if you have any questions you can ask me. I hope this helps!
