I have been reading numerous posts about edging through the wake so my frien video taped my runs tonight. I almost pulled a 180, ya i know pathetic but i am happy. I totally stop at the wake. My edge is good too it but before the wake i do this like double bounce thing and totally flatten out. I am having trouble getting pop and standing up without flattening my board.

I have the same problem...It is hard to break old habits...Just visualize...I am starting to get the hang of it, and I have also been trying to pay attention to my edging to see where I go wrong.

Try jumping the wake from only about 5' outside. That will force you to cut hard and edge through the wake. A lot of people let off because they have too much speed going into the wake, so if you start just a couple of feet outside you won't have that problem. It's a good way to practice your cut and edging.

Bill is right a lot of rooks take themselves way outside the wake cut superhard then get a little scared intimidated or whatever and let off. The point is either do what bill says or cut out and start you edge super slow a cut harder slowly!
