The difference between my good bat wings and my lazy ones is maintaining line tension all the way through the wake. I wouldn't worry to much about where to put the board, it is going to to go. As...

I wear above the knee shorts typically. I surf and sloppy shorts when short boarding get in the way IMO and you feel slower paddling. I'm not going to own wakeboard shorts and surf shorts.

LSV or VLX

What do you guys think? I've narrowed my selection down to two boats. The VLX is a sharper looking boat (black Sparkles) and the LSV is bigger but is classic red, white and black. They are...

But if you are previously uninsurable and your insurance is now $3,4,5K/month, with a $50K deductible. You are still not insured is my point.

Waco is 2 hrs from Dallas and there is nothing there except the hands down best wakeboard park in the country. Nothing is even in the ball park. OWC has Disney.

August. It is simpler than that. There is only 1 Bill this year. The william is the exact shape, but it has a super stiff/wake layup. Both have a sintered base.

GO SMALL! The sizing for those boards is all cooky. I get what Ronix is trying to do, but at 160 you shouldn't even consider the standard. It is massive. I'm about your size and I've ridden both. The...

Just learn to drive your boat. This ranks as one of the silliest discussions in WW history. Bow thrusters on a 23ft boat!? Honestly guys, crap like this is why boats are 100K in the first place.
