    How do you like the 144? I rode a One 142, then a 146 for a season each before going flex.

    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?

    That reminds me, I need to start watching and memorizing this video again.

    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    Can you do what ever you did to fix this section in the Moomba Owners Section?

    I like it. Im 6'4 so a bigger board is helpful. I sometimes wonder if a smaller board would help on spins.

    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!
