If you are hitting kickers, I would assume you potentially could have more of a risk of blowing an acl. A lot of kickers, throw you straight up and you land really flat, which is just begging for a blown knee.

I've seen a ton of guys get their knees killed on cable...including myself.

Well that explains it...its just not that good for any of us. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/crazy.gif" border=0> There's 2 people in the world that really love wakeboarding! Us..the wakeboarding community....and Orthopedic Surgeons!!

I haven't killed mine, but tweaked the crap out of them off a kicker on the cable

I stiff legged a landing off an A-Frame at the cable and jammed my knee hard. It took nearly 2 years before any hint of pain finally went away. But required no medical treatment.

i never thought cable had too much potential for injury....until friday. I got one hell of a concussion, floated face up for about 2 minutes.... my guess you could definitely suffer knee injuries. but i have a friend who doesn't ride boat anymore, just cable, because he has already had many knee problems

My good Buddy and editor of Managing editor of WBM Blew his right ACL at OWC off the kicker.
