yes... jumping... i've been working on my w2w... i've done it before just edging in as fast as i can and getting know height.. but since i got no wakeboard boat/tower/ballast, i've had to spend a lot more time on pop then some...

so what i'm doing is i'm clearing the wake, and sometimes into the flats... thats not the hard part, but in the air i'm in some weird direction... here are some pics to help

It looks like your not balancing your weight on both of your feet when you hit the top of the wake. Try putting a little more weight on your front foot. Also it looks like your bending over at the waist when your cutting in. Try to straighten up your back and stand tall. Keep the handle in closer to your hips too.

Brett- You've got too much weight on your back foot into your pop. Remember, how you take off is how you most likely will land. This photo is evidence that you are putting too much pressure on your back foot into the trough of the wake just before you are popping. Like Matt said, you need to be a little more balanced and think about the 60/40 weight rule. 60% on the back / 40% on the front.

BTW- It will also, help if you aren't jumping coming out of a boat turn like it appears you are in this photo. This is going to give you too much line tension to do most basic tricks.
