Tandem Wakesurfing
So we have been having a fun time demoing some boards and doing lots of Tandem surfing, so of course, we made a little video. We are including this in the how to 101 series. If you have any pictures or videos of Tandem rides, post em.

great stuff. Tried with my daughter on saturday and thought I was gonna drown, but we weren't choking up for her! I'm gonna make this happen.

ragboy 06-29-2010 7:10 PM

Yeah, the trick is the front person has to choke up, we have been doing this for a while, on several types of boards. Here are some more pics. And make sure you post pics if you get it with your daughter.

One of my favorite shots








Here is the full slide show of pics:

Those are great, I remember that big yellow board.

wofrankwo 06-30-2010 8:10 AM

we are going to rollins lake the 6th to the 11th and dennis is letting me borrow it ...... the kids have been wanting to ride the board alot ...... laura used to ride it alone and she looked like a longboarder in the ocean by walking up and down the board as she rode it

we would use 2 ropes to get the kids started as they each held a rope
