ok i am slowly progressing, i can get outside of the wake. then i cleared the wake and now im in a rut. every time i land either in the flats or on the downslope of the wake, the board wabbles, slides, the rope goes loose and i end up leaning way back and falling on my ass or the rope tightens really quickly and my balance is thrown way off. any sugestions? is there something i need to do to keep the rope taught as i land or is this something i just have to keep doing until i get it right and get the feel for it? thanks.

dude, what kind of board are you riding? Are you riding finless?

when you land, it's not the best habit to form, but let go w/ your trailing hand. also as randy said, maybe you need a more stable board at first -- good luck and let us know how it goes...

Do you continue to edge out after you land?

IMO... Edge heelside when you land and keep the handle close to your hips.

Land on edge and maintain you direction across the wake. Many beginner try to land flat and in the direction of the boat.

i am not riding finless. i am landing flat but pointing in the same direction kind of perpendicular to the boat and trying land heal down. how do you land on the edge without digging the board into the water? so if im hearing you guys i need to lean back healside and backedgeside so im kind of edging the board against the direction of the boat when i land? is that right?

When you're edging through the wake you're in a seated position. Maintain that position in the air (don't get pulled out of it). Automatically, you'll be on edge when you land with the rope tight.

u dont nececarilly need to be edging when u land but you do need to have the board pointing in the direction you are going.

Keep the rope in close to your lead hip while in the air or youll be pulled off axis and cause you to land off balance. Once you land you can let go with one hand to do your cowboy immitation to keep your balance.
