This video was from my last pull of the day, and I was dead tired so it's not near my best jump. I need some critiquing on my jump. Just after watching it myself it appears I am not digging in enough with the board, I come off of it a little before I hit the wake, and lastly my knees are still bent a good bit once I hit the wake. (Basically the 3 most important things?). This was probably my worst jump of the day, but I feel like I'm making the same mistakes on all my jumps just not as badly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGfOT9PwQRM
Also, I just started trying to throw in some grabs (didn't get any video or pics of that)- but I feel like when I try to grab the board I'm leaning over more and becoming a little off balance, as opposed to pulling the board up to me. Any advice on pulling the board up? Is it just a mental thing I need to do.
This is a pic from my jump right after, and it appears to all be the same stuff.
Also, how does the wake look? This was with 4 people in the boat, and no added weight. We were supposed to have a full boat of 9 people, so I left the fat sacs at home, then the other 4 bailed on us last minute. http://s186.photobucket.com/albums/x275/doug5984/?action=view¤t=CIMG0399.jpg
Wanted to add- after looking at that pic, it looks like I should drop the rope back another 5 feet. Does that seem to be an ok choice?
