Skill Level??
Just out of curiosity what skill level rider do you extend/expect whenyou ask for a third?? I mean is it like if you cant throw an invert dont bother or as long as you got gas money bring your ass! Just curios thanx.

If you have gas money, good attitude, not a douche, willing to help out with boat duties, good attitude, and gas money you're welcome on my ride. Most guys I ride with cant throw an invert or even jump W2W toeside. Shoot, I can't even throw an invert. Way I see it, if I want to progress I have to ride as much as possible and can't be too picky. What Ive found on here is most guys are at or under the same skill level as me. One time I rode with a sponsored rider and man, talk about getting inspired to push my riding, but thats another story. Happy shredding!!

As long as you can get up every time you'd be welcome on my boat. I wouldn't want to spend half the day teaching someone the basics, but other than that I wouldn't care as long as they're cool to kick it with.

Forget the gas,I would be most interested in your skills at waxing and cleaning the boat.:D:D;)

Skill level doesn't really matter to me. As long as you have a good attitude and help out it's all good.

I'm just learning to wakeboard so I'm not picky at all. I'll take people who have never done any watersports, never been on a boat, whatever. Takes 3 to ride and usually it's just me or one other and hurting for a third. If we burn 20 gallons trying to get someone up, so be it. I actually enjoy getting people into watersports. Hard to get any better when I'm lucky to get out once a month between weather and lack of a crew. I can't even wake to wake yet so anyone I find on here will be better than me. I do ride kneeboard and am half decent at that, wake to wake but no inverts yet (goal for this season).

I have wondered the same about hopping on other people's boats though. I always throw in gas money, but feel bad being "that guy" that falls a lot on a wakeboard, or "that guy" that brings a kneeboard, since most wakeboarders make fun of kneeboarders. But, you gotta get on the water to get any better.
