I usually leave the wake as far as possable. I'm Almost side by side with the boat. The rope will not be so tight then. When the rope tightens back up I use the sight jerking power ,it gives me, to gain speed.I edge all the way to the wake really hard, and my knees are bent.Right before I hit the wake I flatten out and straighten my knees. (like jumping without using you ankles)I can usually land about a foot ot two on the flats.
I hope my info was useful! Have fun!
