Not so well, wind was blowing so hard Saturday all day I couldn't find a decent spot on the lake. Our spot that's glass 90% of the time had 1' chop all day. I was on the lake 10 hours and boarded a total of 5 minutes I think. Headed back this afternoon and hope to give it a shot again!

Well today didnt go much better.. I couldn't get in the groove, I couldn't even jump wake to wake today. Plyon speakers weren't working and that really brought my vibe down.. I had the best set right before I left for the day. If I had rode as relaxed and as well as the last set I would have been able to do alot better all day.

Kind of how it went for me today as well. Although I was getting wake-2-wake, i was not getting the pop I was getting last week. I had the gopro (will not share cause it was ugly!) and when I looked at the video I could see all. I was not keeping the loaded (tension) when going up the wake; I was turning too hard/fast initially. I was not extending enough and at that far too late. Some days are like that, a step back and next time hopefully two steps forward...

I think I'm going to have to go ride with someone who knows more than I do. But around here I don't know anyone. My self teach only works so well. If I had someone "teaching" me I think it would help

Sign up for learnwake.com. It's 10 bucks a month. Give it a shot for a month of two. They give you tons of good fundamentals and you can send in videos and they'll tell you no only what you're doing wrong, but what to do to fix it.
