#2 - I am not keep rope down

#4 - need to keep shoulders in right position..

No bouys so 0 @ 15 off...
#3 is the wrong mentality. Cbryan70 is correct. You never really want a flat ski. One edge or the other basically. The angle of attack cross course is more of following the boat and crossing the wake vs going straight across.

Now I know it's cold and busting your a$$ in cold water is not fun, but try being more aggressive behind the boat. More angle so perpendicular to the direction the boat is going. Then roll the ski to the opposite edge after the wake crossing. This will slow you down without having the lean back or tons of slack.

Not bad for the first time out though.
