    2900-3000 rpm is where the wave cleans up

    That wave doesn't look good, maybe one of the others can give some advice. Seems way to fast and more weight on Surf side, probably start at 9 and work up to 11?

    You need to stand up with equal weight on both feet..

    If you check my youtube channel there's lots of Surf videos..

    11.1 mph is fine for the Mojo, but you need the right ballast setup. For regular, 1,100 full on surf side, 370 under port seats, off side at least 1/2 full, center tank full and IBS full. Wakeplate 75-100% up.

    I am all the above except no 370 added port
    That may be what I'm missing
    It is much better with two adults on port

    Looks like you're pretty far back in the wave pocket, less push back there. Also, stand up taller and use 2 hands on the rope...I'm exhausted just watching you..plus I bet your arm is burning. Finally, remember your front foot is the gas pedal and your rear foot (right) is the brake. Try shifting at least your front foot (left) more forward on your board if not both feet slightly more forward. It's a constant shifting/leaning of weight forward and aft on your board and fine tuning foot position.

    at the very least - if the driver isn't the videographer - get that person to sit on the surf side!!!

    1st thing I would suggest is to pull yourself into the wave instead of staying on top of it and the majority of your body weight is over the center of the board - and yes it does look like your going way too fast.

    Lean forward on the board means you're on the gas
    Lean back and you're on the brakes.

    if you lean way forward (toward the boat) you will eventually accelerate all the way to the swim platform. If you stay leaned back (away from the boat) you will fall out of the wake completely. mix the two together to stay where you want in the wake.
