everytime I jump it seems to look like this... Sometimes I land it, sometimes I slide out and crash... just not sure why my tip always seems go up. I dont really notice it when I am doing it, but when I see the photos its clear...

And also I am not back home with my boat anymore, Im overseas so the boat time I get is rented, they have a designated driver, there is nothing I can do to weight the boat or really do anything in regards to driving, just looking for some technique pointers.

when I come up on the wake i approach knees bent and straighten out right before hitting the wake trying to keep the rope low to my hip.

Don't straighten your legs before you hit the wake. You get vertical pop from extending your legs as you go up the wake. Can you hold on with both hands? Don't let go with your trailing hand unless you are going for the grab.

You're not keeping your legs straight. In the first picture you're barely even off the wake and already knees completely bent. Focus on even weight on both feet and standing tall and holding it. Resist the pull of the rope and keep both hands on the rope and as close to your hips as possible.

^Yep, he might be straightening before the wake, but they are collapsing coming off the wake.

Looks like your weight is on your rear foot,must be even distribution for good pop. And I know they drive for you but if your paying tell that guy to drive a straight line!! 1 long swooping turn is a waste of $.

both hands on the handle, low on the hip[, progressively build speed as you approach and stand tall at the lip of the wake

Start small. Really short approaches, really progressive edges... roll into edge slow, and cut harder as you near the lip. You want your hardest part of the approach edging at the last moment. Start your cut at 10%, then 20%, 30%, etc etc so you're at 100% right at the end.

WAIT WAIT WAIT to pop, it takes a long time to be at the top, don't rush it.

Try to keep two hands on the handle and keep it really tight to your lead hip.... handle control may seem irrelevant to jumping, it is not.

Tip coming up is because of edging in with more weight on back foot, like Red said. Before you start edging back in, put more weight on your front foot, and keep it like that.

I used to suffer from the same problem, as Red said above you have too much weight on your back foot. You will land as you took off, so if you land tail heavy it means you took off tail heavy.

Are there supposed to be pictures here? All I see is text and references to pics. Did they get deleted or something?

Your rope may be too far out.

In the first pic it looks like you are hitting the wake just behind the curl. If you are popping and hitting the wake there it may throw your nose up like that.
