Get close to it and ollie right next to it to get your comfortable speed and build some confidence. This is the approach we took when starting to use our floating raft as a slider.

We pick up as much as we can at Fort Fremont in Fremont WI. It's on my way to the lake, and I can call ahead to have gear put aside. Since they're on the Wolf River, they sponsor local contests and...

Slow the boat down to 17 or so and focus on surface 180 slides, then do 180 slides through the wake. This should build confidence and lessen the impact of the fall. From there work your way up to...

Definitely start on the beginner cable, the slower speed allows you to get used to the turns and obstacles. If you haven't ridden cable before, grab a kneeboard first to get a feel for it. The...

I've used Hot Sauce religiously since I bought a black boat and live in an area of extremely hard water with similar results that Todd describes. I wax in spring and wipe every time I pull it out of...

Not sure of exact temps, but we have been to OWC the last two years over spring break and it's been comfortable. I believe they rent wet suits if it's a chilly spring, but I've only seen one person...

WI law is for a competent passenger. That being said, my son has spotted since age 7, that was competent enough for me. As long as they can demonstrate the hand signals and communicate them to the...

The prop will give you greater boat control and allow you to maintain a slower speed. It's difficult to hold 20 with the 3-blade as you're right on the edge of planing out. The 4-blade drops that...

One more thing, throw a 14x20 4-blade prop on there, it'll be easier to hold in that 18-20 mph range. You'll lose a little on top end, but the performance boost for tow sports is worth it. You're...
