Nice!

What length and speed are you riding? The wake looks great.

Thanks guys, it was a trick I wanted to land for a while and i have been getting fairly consistent on them this season, the trick is to keep you arm/elbow in with the one hand that holds the rope.

As for the wake, we were riding my XLV with 2500lbs, 2 guys in the boat, plate at close to all the way down (about 10-15% up on the gauge, so almost all the way down), and we were riding at 22mph.

I know a lot of people think that if they put the plate up so the ass end sinks down the wake will be better and steeper ..... its not. In my experience, on MY boat, from the plate being all the way down, the first 25% up is all that is used for wakeboarding or surfing and we never adjust out of this area. For beginners I always have the plate %100 down.

Exact same way with my boat.

Nice job on the R2R! When I try stuff like that it's usually R2R2ER...

Same here on the plate. The only way around it is to go front heavy with your ballast.

Nice! Been trying those a few times last year but no luck. I can do tantrums just fine but not rolls for some reason ???
