My wife has been trying to get w2w down for ages now. I don't know what to tell her anymore, advice wise. The worst part about it is that she has always had bad knees and casing the wake over and over again is killing her.

Overall, I know there is alot shes not doing perfect. Her cut can be more progressive and she could pop her knees more straight at the wake. I've told her this 1000x but it doesnt help. She feels like she is trying to pop at the wake and that she is trying to cut hardest at the wake. In fact, on some jumps she pops harder but then cut is worse, other jumps she cuts alot better butthen her leg extension suffers. What bothers me the most though is I dont know how she isn't making it w2w at this point. No matter what we try, she is always inches away. I mess up on wake jumps all the time (not a great cut or did time the pop right). This usually just leads to ****ty height but I always make it atleast w2w. So I know her jumps aren't perfect, but it seems like it should be enough for the w2w and its just not!

We were riding at 21.4mph and 65 ft for a while but recently just brought it in to 60ft and 19.2mph. It's made for a more pleasant time riding with less traumatic falls. I've tried bumping the speed for her a little and it does nothing. She is still inches away. I'm guessing her cut just gets a little less strong. I can't shorten the rope any more because any shorter and it gets really close to the middle boat spray which scares her. But regardless of speed, she lands in the same spot!

At the current time we are dedicated enough to go through the winter in dry suits. I know how lucky we are that we are both happy to do that. But I know it is not fun to not progress at all for months. She has been practicing other things in the mean time, but I'm afraid if she doesn't start getting it soon, any day now she will just throw in the towel.

Here is a video of last time we were out.Each jump is a little different, but in each one she lands in almost the exact same spot, killing her knees!

Any advice would be appreciated!
