First time behind a boat!!!!
Hi Guys, Im new to the forum so please excuse me if I have put this in the wrong place. I just wanted to ask for some quick advice about going behind a boat. I am a Cablerat as some of you on here say. I get to the cable every other saturday for 3/4 hours in the summer and have done for the last couple of years. I have had a 5 minute trip behind a boat while on holiday but tomorrow im off to a fantastic lake to get towed by a boat all day! Cant wait!
What I wanted to ask was....is there anything I should change, think about or consider before I go? will i have to change my riding style? Any advice will be appreciated.

Not sure about the riding all day part...boat sets are much shorter than a cable set. Get out there and have fun!

Hitting a wake vs a kicker will be pretty different IMO. Just have fun man!

Have fun and take it slow... you'll do fine. I think cable riding works slightly different muscles, you should be able to handle some decent length boat sets and a day of riding

if you want air, make sure you hold your edge, even when through your take off. I prefer boat riding just because you get more riding time in between falls. have some fun man!
