what's up everyone Sean Murray here at Orlando water Sports Complex Oh WC and I'm getting ready go take a ride I was thinking about it I've had a lot of questions where people like hey I want to get more pop and then I get a lot of questions I want to get more pop up in a small way so I'm gonna tell you guys both right now if you haven't seen the video that I did a while ago how to get more pop check back in some of my videos and you look at that you know how kind of explain some of these things I'm gonna tell you get me more of an understanding because this is gonna be a little bit more brief so check that out you've already seen it keep going so the things I'm going to tell you guys about is about load and release from that other video we talked about push and pull and how those things can feel like your friend or your enemy when you're cutting on a board the harder you cut the more push you get or pull you again and you always want that coming from somewhere in your core you want that connection of push to pull you want that translation of those two things that happen somewhere in here that's why if somebody's waterskiing they're out of well it's this yeah they're super detached so I want you to stay really connected the other thing that I'm going to do is I'm gonna do a little bit of a drill where I cut outside the wake and I do a quick load and my body is stacked up all my bones are vertical on top of each other shoulders back hips up do that by arching your back shoulders back hips up load power that's where you feel a lot of push and pull so load and then stop cut it and call that a release so you're going to load and then release you do that there's a moment when you're getting pushed back when you release them push them for a split second you want to do that as you're going up the weight load at the bottom of the weight release at the top so I'm going to do this drill outside of the wake just a couple times for you guys to see and then I'm going to do this load and release off the wake for just a one-way drill I do this with almost all my students and it really helps turn on that light bulb to really understand where true pop comes from sure the big wakes can help and the right rocker and boards and boots and all these different things but the first thing we really want to understand is that low you're gonna literally get pushed and pulled up into the air if you're in a wrong body position that thing is going to actually feel like your enemy so it's all about stacking up let your arms relax let your body position for your cut and then cut wait to jump I'm gonna do all this behind the ski not eat 200 no wait the thing tiny little way because like I said I've had a lot of people ask me I only have a small wig can I get more air of it you can literally get air off of flat water if you're doing them properly so let's take this out into the ski boat and I might hop behind the Jean just to finish things up let's go all right I got my homeboy layered here eight years old where you from is it chilly today yeah put on my wetsuit Brandon Fuentes my coach is here getting ready to drive I'm throwing on a pulsar it's chilly I know you go to such wimps in Florida it's gold I'm riding the murray 144 yeah and for those of you met me are like guys shorter than you think in person five six 150 this is my 144 sometimes I ride my 139 for those of you who are looking yes I ride my front foot back so I'm slightly too heavy I got my past Marie's handle handle here they said handle twice let's go behind the skin I'll take I'm gonna ride probably 65 feet maybe 70 not too long not too short please ray Macy's reasoning so going up driver what this yeah that was fun you know little wake still get pop I was good time you may see me see other riders squat down before they go into way can you price all some of that there you can't do that you're just adding an element of timing and so you'll hear some people say stand up when you get to the wig yes you are supposed to stand out but what I like to show you is that you're just standing on the way in you can create the power without even having to add that step up standing up at the right time hope you guys enjoyed it you guys thanks for watching consider subscribing enjoy your ride peace now sidebar I'm going on throughout behind this thing real quick this part video is done and then cue the music

    Hey Shaun, great tutorial

    I was woundering if you could make a video behind a jetski. Here in Brazil a lot of wakeboarders practice behind a jetski, but we are having trouble regarding speed, rope lenght, pop techniques and stuff. It would be great to have a pro giving some tips about it.

    Cheers

    Shaun, what's the lowest speed where you can still pop with minimal wake?

    Awesome video! I think this really makes sense. You hear all the videos progressive edge and that you should be cutting the hardest at the wake. Where IMO this is not the case because you would slice through the wake every time. You had some TS jumps in there, but think you can do a video similar to this, just on TS jumps? I can do TS jumps but my timing has to be perfect every time and I have trouble going any farther than just W2W. Keep this videos coming! Where is the next place the handle is going?

    So we are not supposed to hold the edge to the top of the wake? I am a bit confused right now..

    Can you explain the 'release" a little more? Are you coming off your edge a little at this point?

    Brilliant! I've been waiting for some more info on pop at the wake. I get some time with good wakeboats but a lot of my longer practice sessions are via PWC. I'm the same height 5'6'' with my weight at 150lbs. I ride a heavy 2017, 138 board and looking at a 2019 lighter 142. I see you ride a 137&144 how much difference to you does it make and why the different sizes, please? I'm a good novice, fast approaching intermediate. Any advice would be so much appreciated… Great to see you back dude, stay happy.

    Finally, something in one of your posts us mere mortals might actually be able to do at 6:00! Love all the videos, but especially these breakdowns. Just started last summer and still learning, and these really help. We'll get there eventually – just got to keep shredding. Thanks for the tips & motivation!

    Solid video — I was with Adam Fields this summer when he did his first backwards start… I believe he mentioned that you were showing him how to do it years ago! We starting go to see Adam for coaching and love that guy. Though, he may be a little busier changing dippers this year!
