    The wave looks surf able as is, but the other suggestions should improve it and give you a longer pocket. Remember front foot is gas rear foot is brake. From the video it looks like you are leaning quite heavily on rear foot. Also, the rideable pocket is probably much closer to the boat than you expect.

    Yeah I'm hoping to take l the advice and give it another shot in the next few days.. I do agree on the board being a bit smaller then what I should be riding.. Inland surfers red rocket looks like more of a board for me!

    you can surf the red rocket behind a pontoon boat. seriously the wave looks pretty good, surfable. russ has some good advice . I have found that offside weight in the starboard locker should be max of 250lbs otherwise it gets washy.

    The wave is very surfable. Looks to me like your board is just not the right size for you.

    Ha ha, true story. Maybe even a canoe if you've got a strong driver.

    yeah, I could freeride that all day long. I'd say that you could certainly do some work to make the wave longer though.

    That said, I think that focusing on the finer movements to keep yourself in the sweet spot would go a long ways. you've got the rope and that's your "safety net". it seems like it's tempting you to make the more aggressive slashes on the wake which in turn have you finding yourself out of the pocket and catching yourself with the rope.

    Crawl before you run. Focus on being able to be able to stay in the pocket ropeless no matter what, being able to pump back into the pocket when you start to fall back, then add in the fun more aggressive moves knowing that you'll be able to recover.

    I take a few seconds to allow the boat speed to settle in, then toss the rope and never use it again. Monday I was out on someone else's boat and they were a lot newer at surfing. We had a few instances where we had a bunch of rollers come at us from a boat passing the opposite direction and they were motioning to me asking if I wanted the rope back. I shook my head no, made sure I was right in the middle of the pocket, bent my knees and bounced over the rollers.

    That confidence of knowing that you can freeride no matter what really goes a long way.

    I'm glad someone made this thread. I was getting ready to start the same thread. Having issues with my wave.

    I had 10 XLV with upgraded 750's in the rear lockers. I would fill the opposite of surf side and fill the front, no wake plate 10.5 MPH. Had a really nice wake.

    Your boat didn't have a wake plate or you set it all the way down.
