Here is a link to the skill level I am currently at. I would like to advance my skills and start getting some air. Any instruction would be appreciated.

You look like you are doing well so far. It seems like you still have to concentrate hard at keeping your balance and staying on the wave. Just keep practicing at carving and pumping the wake. Once you feel like you can aggressively cut up the wake without worrying about loosing the wake then you can begin taking harder charges at the top of the wake to try and get some air. Keep at it. You've got a good start.

John looks smooth , i see their was alot of chop from other boats. you need to remove the center fin , if it has one and start slashing and as Kenny said work on balance

It is my first year wakesurfing so I am still working on relaxing and balance. My board does have three fins but I have seen videos of guys getting air with four fins so what will removing one of the fins do?

That is def one of the how to videos we are working on for the near future, but I did create a practice session video of RJ the other day, and you can watch him working on his air, over and over, and there are some slow mo shots.

taking out the center fin makes the board real loose , this will help you learn to control the board and use your rails and fins, trust me after you get used to it you will leave it out for good.

I hate the third fin also, I can't get alot of air, but I can get a little grab in the air now. Work on your pop with the rope.

I loved the YT video on your home page.

I love to see people pushing the boundaries of what is considered acceptable, and then sometimes find something very cool in the process. Same thing with DJJames out there sinking his boat out there and killing it. Every sport needs those certain people out there pushing the limits. Fun to watch.
