I cant seem to get very much air. Even though I cut as hard as I can nothing will ever work. I constantly only get 2-3 ft. off the wake and I dont think that alot...what should I do?????

Picture or video would help, but chances are it is because you are not taking a progressive cut and not standing tall at the wake. Your technice and cut is everything.

Just cut out maybe 8-10 feet outside the wake, take a nice progressive cut into the wake keeping the line tension built up. Keep the handle down low by your waist. When you start to approach the peak of the wake stand tall, bringing your upper body (hips/shoulders) over the board, and kinda give the handle a little push down as you come off the wake. THat will put your body over the board projectng the pop UP and give you the most amount of pop.

Good luck

Lindsay, its how you edge into the wake. You can cut hard and fly at the wake and if you flatten out and/or dont stand tall, you wont go high. You can go far, just not high. Post a vid to help us help you.

I had the same problem and the only way I could get any higher was by, while doing the proggresive crap, play tug of war with the boat and try to go in the opposite direction of the boat, or backwards, this'll give u alot of tension, then just stand tall and you'll figure it out from there.
