I plan on trying it for the first time very soon! any tips?
let the boat pull you up. Keep your knees slightly bent and more weight on your back foot. Really work on working the edges of the board before trying any sort of jumping. Key is to get comfortable with the board.

I was doing a very simple pop 180 where you are on your edge riding outside the wake, ollie and do a 180 and i started the rotation too soon and caught the front edge. I think i only have one working testicle now.

just started about 2 weeks ago lookin to buy a board you know anything about them?
i absolutely love my hyperlite belmont (mine is a honeycomb). I think its a great board because its not too agressive but not too subtle either. The board will definetly grow with you.

i weigh like 205 lbs so im usually wakeboarding at about 23 or so. I have wakeboarded behind towers about 5-8 times and just love them, but im usually riding behind ski boats so the spins and all that stuff are a little bit more difficult for me. I hope to be going back up in about 2 weeks behind an air natique

I'm a water skier from WAY back in the day.

You'll have that when you grow up with the bay as your back yard and all your family and friends have boats.

:cool:

That kind of childhood makes me jealous as I'm a big fisherman.
