Jumping the wakes. Simple, right? But what about clearing both? Even if you get your board from here to there, you might not look as good as you think. Here's how to get over the wakes with style and grace, with minimum risk to life and limbs.
First of all, you want to feel comfortable crossing both wakes and doing small one-wake jumps from both sides – that's right, both sides – before conquering the two-wake jump.
Cut outside the wake (about 15 feet), get ready for your slow turn (Photo 1) and begin your cut toward
the wake (Photo 2). Keeping your arms low and your knees slightly bent (Photo 3), allow yourself and your board to come completely off the wake (Photo 4). Once you are in the air (Photo 5), keep looking where you're going. Spot your landing on the downside transition of the second wake (Photo 6) and allow the board to ride smoothly down the wake (Photo 7) by keeping your knees bent and your upper body tall.
