This is the trick that almost every person wants to learn, so here it is. Take a very wide, super-progressive edge into the wake. It’s very important to stand extremely tall during your approach. Imagine your body being on a single plane; the key to staying tall is keeping your hips up with your handle as close as possible. Edge up and through the wake, pushing the board up and behind you with your toes, simultaneously letting your arms up and out. The key is letting yourself get completely extended to create a snapping effect, making it easier to pull the handle back to hips for the landing. If you’re having the problem of the board stargazing (the nose of the board is higher than the tail), look at the boat once in the air and put a little more weight on your front foot.
