Got a very small wake to wake on my third attempt. May not be spectacular but I was delighted with it anyway. Can't wait to get back out now

Any pointers would be appreciated.

P.S. This only about my 7th time riding. Ever

congrats! thats a great feeling for all of us. have your driver trim the boat up (higher nose) and/or move everyone to the rear. the wake is very flat. allitle more lip would give you some more vertical pop.

btw amazing scenery and water. but it looks cold there!

Thanks. The scenery is breathtaking at Loch Lomond . It doesn't actually look it in that video but it was pretty warm yesterday (For Scottishs standards anyway)

Agree to trim up, or lengthen the line more... looks to be a bit short.
I recommend " The Book " series, or signing up for learn to wake even just for a month.

your rope is too short. let the handle out while going wakespeed and measure it to where the clean wake meets the wash, and load that baby up with some people or ballast. If you think that was a thrill wait till you get a few feet of air and land wake to wake 15ft span. keep pushing yourself...your hooked now!

Thanks. I certainly am. I have been watching loads of tutorials and I am now just desperate to get out and work on it. unfortunately I live in Scotland and the weather has been terrible since the weekend so not had a chance. I go to Spain a week on Saturday so going to get some riding in. Looking forward to trying it without the need for a wetsuit

Nice, work on standing tall at the top of the wake, and It'll improve! good job

keep the handle low to your waist, and stand tall through the wake. You should get some pop doing these two things
