You have the same issue I am having - you're putting the brakes on before you enter the wake. I ride left foot front and I am ok left cross, right cross I am weak. I keep working on dropping my hip - edge and play tug of war with the back of the boat. I watch that marcus brown video and I just don't get out enough....

From your pictures - I suggest continuing the cut into the wake - lean up a bit to get the tip down - but drop that hip and pull with arms straight....and then you'll slingshot wide... you'll know when you do it right..even on your boat you'll slice thru the wake...



Where do you ski Larue?

get those arms straight boys, your pull needs to come from the3 core, not the arms....
