I noticed he was turning a bit to get the wake clean on the side you were approaching as well. This will help clean up the wake, but will also make it a lot harder to cut far outside the wake. Looks like a go pro camera so its hard to see, but the wake is wide where you are riding. Are you sure its 22, and if it is accurate, that wake is way too washy for that speed. Is it a big (24+) boat or does it have a lot of ballast in it? Dump the ballast or speed up, and bring your rope in 5 feet.
You are getting a boat this week so its all mute now, but take these pointers with you on your boat. Post pictures of your new tow.
