More loading the line harder than a harder cut. Your almost flat coming in. Before you start in towards the wake, let the board "sink" and bite a bit and then progressively edge harder and harder to the wake and DON'T let off your edge/ line tension and lock your legs at the bottom of the wake, then you'll boost...

alright thanks. i can clear the wake no problem like that. just not alot of pop. ill cut out around 15 feet. and once the board starts to head back toward the wake ill just start leaning in and straighten my legs at the top of the wake. but i was just looking thorough pics over the weekend. and realized how flat my board was and how it could be my problem

IMO you need to even up your weight dist. More weight on your front foot. I looks like you are leaning away from the wake which normally results in crap pop and front of the board skying up.

lucky for you all I am extremely bored and had time to do the research and make this amazing graph.

The closer to the wake you get the harder the cut should get.... start at 10%, you get closer go to 20%, closer still 30% so on and so on until you reach the wake and should be cutting at 80%+
