I'm out in Cyprus and we have our local waterski/wakeboard champs at the end of this month. I wasn't planning to compete because i have only just started wakeboarding but the coach said to give it a try. We have 2 30 second passes to do as many tricks as possible. <BR> <BR>I can do most of the things on the wakeworld beginners trick list <BR>}} <BR>Anybody have any ideas for a good fluid routine that will get a beginner maximum possible points?

I have no idea on routines, but good luck!

do what ever you can do as many times as you can do it. If you can go across both wakes, do it. It you can do a surface 180, do that too. If you can do a wake 2 wake heel side but not toe side then just do that. Do as many different things as you can in the time allowed. I am a beginner adult who competes and this is what I do: I do surface 180's as the boat is still getting up to speed. They are easier to do slow. then I go out toeside and come across one wake then the other, just to warm up and feel out the wake. Then I cut out and do a wake 2 wake HS. Then I do some lip slides and turn 180 over the lip. Then I cut out toe side switch and do a half cab which puts me back regular. Then I go out heelside and cut back in for a one wake 180. If I am still going I do a couple more heel side wake 2 wake jumps and head for a slider and try to go up it. If you can only cross the wake then do that as much as possible. What I have found the comps do for me is get me to get focused and prepare quickly. I never win, but I ALWAYS have a great time and push myself to do the tricks and focus with very little warm up. <BR> <BR>Good luck and HAVE FUN
