All boats start to need work the day you buy it. It's not always a big job, but they always need a little something (cleaning, oil change, or what I call "keeping an eye on this".... etc). There's...

It'll feel different I bet, kind of like practicing on a trampoline with a rope and board. I'd give it a shot though!

That's even a little high. BSR's website says their season pass is $900 and evo has outlet deals on slingshot combos for $400-$600. That's about $1,600 per year assuming you go through a board and...

Because why don't we need another add on for thousands of dollars that the beginner rider has no business fooling with?

With that being said... I'd love to try it out hahahaha

This is how it SHOULD BE. Sounds very "bait and switch" to me to make a board that looks exactly like the production board (graphics and all) but it's been lightened up or changed. Why even make a...

Varial Flip - Dom's MyWake Video

The entire video is great, but the v-flip happens at 1:51

By the way, the board he's using cost $350 when it's not on sale... This is living proof that skill is most of the equation.

Bingo.

It's a wake, so why not refer to it as one? If you say wave then you should call it wavesurfing and waveboarding and waveskating. It's all the same thing just done at different speeds.

+1 and it's all happening pretty close to the boat, often times past the high point in the wave. Maybe try only one good pump and then the air so you're still a little further back.

Hmm. Hard to say without the video really, it could be a combination of both. Assuming you're in the right spot, when you ride up the wave to air, does the nose come up real high over the lip? Or is...

I've never felt like I was going to launch and land in the boat. Maybe those were some powerful pumps and they just felt unnatural, which made you feel that way? How many pumps did it take you to...

Your pumps seemed to be dramatic (a lot of up, down, and out) without much momentum being gained. Quality pushes over quantity. The way you move on the board now shows you already have a good...

Expert or not, your advice is on the right track.

The bottom turn the OP is doing seems to be taking away the speed he generated. Plus, when you bottom turn that much before your air, you have to...
