I thought the riding was great switch and regular!! On the 180's, it looks like you don't take your "normal" cut out before coming in to the wake. That would make it hard to take those W2W. Pull the rope in 5', take the normal cut out/in and get ready to own w2w 180s! On your HS, just stand tall at the wake so that you get more "hang" time to get your grab on! <BR> <BR>Very nice, Audrey!

sexyws6mama 09-27-2009 5:44 AM

Thanks Kat! I appreciate it! Will work on that today!

polhamus 09-28-2009 5:23 PM

polhamus 09-28-2009 5:26 PM

I was also gonna say. we are the same level, too bad you live in Texas <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/sad.gif" ALT=":-(" BORDER=0>

sexyws6mama 10-04-2009 4:24 PM

My toeside was better than it worse once we got the new boat. I have to stay on edge and keep handle to buttcheck! Kim, I want to throw 360 and backrolls next summer! <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> (you too!)

polhamus 10-04-2009 8:04 PM

I know Audrey, Me too! ok lets make a pact. DO IT!!

parkgirl 10-05-2009 4:59 AM

Looking great! <BR> <BR>I agree with what Kat suggested, shorten that rope and get comfortable taking those TS jumps and 180's w2w. Your form and technique is good you just need a little more ups, so use a harder more aggressive cut on TS and you'll get there!

Certainly some of the more obnoxious accompanying music I have heard.

sexyws6mama 11-07-2009 7:17 AM

I have worked harder since this video and really worked on keeping knees stiff at wake. <BR> <BR>Kim......pact in place! <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> <BR> <BR>Andrea....cleared HS180 and half cab. Still working to clear TS180. I have gotten more height on all of them, just need distance!

wake_upppp 12-01-2009 7:33 PM

Looking good. Work on keeping that handle in close. Remember, your waist is your center of gravity.

Thanks Jay! <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

HAHA! Looking good. So you still play with the car or has wake boarding taken over. We recently did heads and cam on Kristin's WS6. Put down 442 at the rear wheel on a hot hot day.

sexyws6mama 12-09-2009 7:49 PM

aaron......during hot/summer times, it's all wakeboarding. Winter....back to the car! LOL So, it's play time now!

99_slaunch 12-09-2009 8:08 PM

Ya that's pretty much our routine.

ryanw209 01-26-2010 10:16 PM

Audrey- Your riding looks very solid! I would suggest the same as Kat: Pull the rope in 5 feet until you are comfortable clearing W2W HS and TS and make sure you stand tall at the top of the wake. If you pause the video at 2:38 you can see that your knees are bent almost at 90 degrees when you take off which is killing your pop. Focus more on standing tall at the wake and not as much on pulling your knees into your chest when your in the air. If you haven't checked it out already and you want make some serious progress this season check out <a href="http://www.learnwake.com" target="_blank">www.learnwake.com</a> It's the best tool I have found to get on the spot feedback from pro's(like Kyle Schmidt) and has great instructional videos sucj=h as "The Book" and at $10 a month it's the best money I have spent to progress my riding. 3 months after I joined I was landing backrolls, HS FS 360's, Tantrums and TS backrolls. Looking good and keep up the good work!!

I just wanted to let you know what an inspiration you were to me. I watched your video and you did everything so good that I decided I would try it. I now almost have all my 180s down and Im going to start bigger tricks. Have you learned anything new since this video was made?

sexyws6mama 07-14-2010 1:27 PM

I'm glad I could help ya :) I haven't made a video of this year and I'm not sure if I'm going too. I just got a MCL Grade 2 sprain and I'm out for a few weeks, however once I'm back I want to make one for sure. Even this year, I look back at that and see how much I have improved. Make sure you take pictures or video of yourself so you can see the progress!

Yes, this summer I worked on HS 3s, TS BS 180, HS BS 180, lipslides, tantrums, backrolls and some 180 grabs.

You can really advance yourself if you push yourself and have goals out there. Technique helps a ton too. Just be careful :)

Wishing you more success!!!!!

how long have you been riding for? i just started wakeboarding the end of may 2010. my fiance just put this video together for me, two weeks ago. however, tis weekend, i did my first toeside 180. need to keep working on my switch riding though...you ride switch very well.


sexyws6mama 09-13-2010 2:01 PM

chicabrava: The video I posted is almost 1 summer old. I actually can do alot more now. As of now, this is my 3rd summer wakeboarding. My goals this summer were 360s, tantrums, backrolls and well I have attempted those, I haven't ridden away from them. I fell victim of a knee injury (torn MCL) in early July and was taken out for 3 weeks, but I have been working hard to rebuild everything and make my riding even stronger. I went back to basics and learned how to ride with the correct handle position and then learned all grabs on TS/HS, then went to switch jumps, then 180's, then all 180s, then hs 3's and now adding style...poke outs and such. I want to make a new video because that isn't how I ride anymore. I really tried to push myself this summer and overall I cleaned up my riding even more............ and in my book, the summer hasn't ended until November LOL

Nice Vid.....you are in the right direction!

09-13-2010 4:13 PM

ouch! sorry to hear about your injury. that sucks, and i try to stay positive, hoping i won't fall victim of the same in the future. thanks for the video comment. good luck with riding, and i totally agree, it's only september:). take care.

10-04-2010 1:57 PM

i would say just get down solid hs/ts w2s jumps with grabs and then w2w front side 180's, then everything switch. just my .2's looking good though

sexyws6mama 11-01-2010 10:37 AM

Finally making a new video for 2010............coming soon and same thing definetly want critiques!
