I'm with Berg, I mostly crash.
Maybe that should be a new song, a Fat Joe remix:
"I'm not a rider, I just crash a lot!"
Actually, I am getting a little bit better this year, I finally learned the secret to getting good pop on my wake jumps! And since I love you guys, I will share it with y'all!
What is working for me is to not ride up the wake, but pretend like its not even there. Ride straight at it, like I am trying to cut through it, and keep my weight even on both feet. BAM! Crazy pop! Crazy air!
Now I will let you guys know when I figure out the secret to landing these jumps! Baby steps, right?
i think one of my problems like said before..work on my wake..then also work on my pop..i think i got a good pop once and it threw me off..but it felt good to get that much air haha
Yeah, moto, when I get really good pop, it startles me. A third of the time, I panic and crash; another third I lose the handle on a sloppy landing; and the other third I pull out a decent landing.
Also, a big wake is only required for big tricks! I can go W2W easily with no ballast in my boat. A couple of weeks ago, I was going W2W behind a 18 foot Carolina Skiff (obviously with no ballast or tower). Now I can only get a couple of feet of air, but I can make it!
