Hi... first time here but look like a great forum to be <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0> !!! I just started doing some wakeboard at my friend place; went there about 5 times and Im wondering if you guys could give me some tips for turning (or carving<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>). Do you have to lean forward/backward or push on your heels/toes or rotate your hips !? <BR> <BR>Thanks

whatever you do, don't lean forward or you will faceplant. Position your weight to your back foot and practice your heelside &amp; toeside edges. Tell the boat drive not to drive as fast at first maybe 18-20 MPH until you get more comfortable. <BR> <BR>I would recommend picking up some instructional dvd's if you can such as higher learning that would be really helpful.

I already worked on my heelside and toeside, but I wanna have some tips on turning with the board inside or aside the wake like when youre surfing the wake and making "S" !!! Thanks
