Any help would be greatly appreciated

First off you need to take a progressive approach to the wake. Build you edge till you get to your most aggressive edge at the wake.Also you need to stand tall like on a trampoline or a diving board.Then you will get pop off the wake and easily clear the wake. Good Luck!

What length is your rope? It's looks a bit long for the wake of that boat. The wake looks like it has a bit more of a peak several feet in front of you and then flattens out where you hit it. It's more narrow when you're closer as well and therefore easier to clear.

What wake?
perhaps slow the boat down, trim the motor out some causing the bow to rise
I'd start from there

First, you should not use a baseball grip on the handle; hold it with palms down to help keep tension on the line. What helped me is to not try to turn and edge towards the wake at all. Edge out, then wait for the boat to start pulling you back towards the wake (be patient). As that happens, look up the line, get on your heels, and try to get more & more tension on the line as you get closer to the wake. When you get to the bottom of the wake, start to stand up by pushing off the heels; don't absorb the pop with your knees. The goal is to have the most spray coming off your board at the wake and tension on the line. Once you get it, you will be surprised how easy it is to get across. Good luck!

From your video there are some issues, the first being your pop. If you notice, your legs are still collapsed as you leave the wake - your timing off. The second is the wake shape. You have very little ramp, so it makes it difficult to get height. The biggest problems I see when teaching people to jump is lack of timing and the sense that the jumper is way off the surface when they are only slightly above it. Since your wake is small, you will have to ensure you are at full extension before/at the lip. If you can, try slowing the boat down to get a better wake, or adding some ballast. Have fun work on the lip timing and when you start getting some pop, increase your cut and speed to go W-W.
