Make sure you're standing up straight, not bent over at the waist, and turn your hip into it. So if you ride regular, keep your upper body straight and lead with your left hip.

yea, its all in the leaning, and get on ur toes so u can cut ur toeside of the board into the water. once u get good enough with it, u should be able to touch the water with your hand. You just need to trust that ur not going to fall foward and lean as much as you can if u want the speed

Don't be scared dude, it's only water. Lean out over the board as hard as you can. Listen to what the captain of the boat is saying. You've got to listen and close your mouth. It's not the speed dude it's the pop, you need to load the line and extend at the top of the wake. It's really not that difficult.

yea, it really isnt hard once you get the hang of it. One thing I found that really helped me a lot was watching a lot of videos of wakeboarders. After watching a lot of them it all just seemed natural, and like scooby said, its not so much of speed but loading the line with a ton of tension. Thats what happens when you edge. yes, you get some speed but more importantly it puts tension on the rope thats used to get more pop off the wake. Practice edging toeside as hard as you can out into the flats as far as you can. After doing this a bunch of times your back leg should be pretty sore. Good luck

Good advice Brad but I doubt he'll listen. Whosnext I've got some vids you can watch that highlight your mistakes. You've got really poor form on ts right now, but we'll work on it Friday. Later Bro
