this does not promote big air.....speed and line tension are key. Speed and up wind angle and line tension.... To go big you need to solve that issue.....and it should be solvable unless your equipment is beat up. In my experience it is often the mast that sucks air and causes a rapid fall. Good smooth surfaces and always cleaned with windex pre session to get rid of contaminants is a place to start. It's a terrible feeling wanting to push hard and never knowing when you will get spanked into the water at speed.
