You're not doing it right. First, you have to move in straight lines. If the straight line would leave the maze, it's not a valid move. Second, don't count the letters you're moving over, only the ones you land on. Just as an example of what the first three moves might look like: A to C (via B) C to P (via H & M) P to R (via Q) From R, you could only move to B (via N & H). Up is a wave. Down isn't valid. Left is the direction you just came from. I hope that clears things up. The puzzle was a bit confusing. Mooseman got it right, although there is another solution on the long path.
