Looks like you could straighten those arms a bit and stand more evenly over the board.

need to know the context

Dave said exactly it. You need more weight on your front foot and you need to let your arms out.

well its a picture of a cut my cut and i was wondering if thats what you call flattening out or what. I cant completely clear the wake 100% of the time so i was wondering what was the culprit

How fast are you going and what line length. I looks like your board is riding deap in the water, which would mean you are real slow.
Old                10-07-2004, 4:06 PM Reply   
about 20 mph
Old                10-07-2004, 4:07 PM Reply   
and uhhhh about 50' of line i think
Old                10-07-2004, 6:38 PM Reply   
mmh. harder cut should get you out more.
Old                10-07-2004, 7:50 PM Reply   
look at this is there anything wrong with this(im getting closer to the wake
Old    deltahoosier            10-08-2004, 10:08 AM Reply   
Depends what your calibration is, but, 20 mph is pretty slow. Looks like your board is dragging bad. It is hard to tell, but, it does not look like you are hitting a clean wake. My boat has a hard time making a wake at around 20 mph plus the wake will be very wide at the speed. Try speeding up a mile or two and let the rope out a little. Your board will feel crisper getting from edge to edge and the wake may clean up too.

go a little faster

alright thanks
Old                10-08-2004, 2:46 PM Reply   
now at the top of the wake any suggestions
Old    deltahoosier            10-08-2004, 5:48 PM Reply   
You don't have a wake. It is all foam. You can not be consisant with a wake like that. Try and show more of the bottom of the board to the people in the boat.

the bad wake is because i had my 300 pound uncle on the wrong side
Old                10-10-2004, 5:48 AM Reply   
Dude, you must ride with your hands closer to your hips, it will make all tricks easier. push your hips forward toward the handle to keep you more upright. Don't put soo much weight on your back foot. Boat must got a little faster. You need a tower. You need a non-stretch rope with a bigger handle. Cut progressively.

Just go faster, and that will solve most of it.

More speed, get the handle down to the hips.
Old                10-16-2004, 9:31 AM Reply   
more boat speed or edge speed
Old    Alpha_Beast (socalwakepunk)      Join Date: Dec 2002       10-16-2004, 10:59 AM Reply   
Boat speed, the wake looks flat/washed out. Depending on weoght/other factors, you should probably start out around 21 mph.

i wouldn't necessarily agree with the "straightening of the arms" advice. i agree, the handle should be lower, closer to the hips, but straightening the arms might be bad wording.
Old                10-16-2004, 6:37 PM Reply   
It may be just me, but it looks to me like your bindings have your legs tweaked. Have your uncle sit in nose of the boat looking back at you. That should help clean the wake up. If you have tilt/trim, trim it about 1/4. Like all else said, a little more speed.

i think thats one of the biggest reasons for the bad wake anyway thanks
Old                10-17-2004, 5:13 PM Reply   
what do you mean by legs tweaked
Old                10-19-2004, 3:29 PM Reply   
Look at your left knee vs your left foot. At least in the pic it looks like you should point your binding out a little. Looks like your ankle is twisted.

i think i put it that way though thanks for answering my Q & A

jstu relax man you look too tense. Widen the stance, roll onto the back of the foot. edge all the way to the lake. let your arms out some and at the top of the wake pull the handle down to your hip. you should fly

your uncle is really the problem and handle down, not out. duck your left foot out, for sure
Old                06-28-2005, 5:24 PM Reply   
Im no expert but it looks like your bindings are pigion towed. toe them out a little. get the driver to go a little faster. hold the handle lower and cut harder. It doesnt look like a hard cut at all. which is what gives you your pop.
