CROSSING THE WAKE
After practicing with proper positioning behind the boat, the next maneuver to try is crossing the wake
from behind the boat to the outside. Start in the relaxed knees and ankles bent position (Photo 1).
Lean to one side (in this case the right) and the skis will tend to drift toward the right (Photo 2).
Absorb the wake with the knees and ankles (Photo 3). Commit to going over the wake without hesitation. Hesitating
on the wake is unstable and may result in a fall.

Ski down the back of the wake (photo 3) and lean away from the wake to cut out into smooth, undisturbed water
on a calm day. Cutting out in wavy weather will be more challenging.
