Aric, you are free to consider whatever you want. But IMO they are very much the same sport. My buddy who is a very good cable rider threw a raley the first time out behind a boat. I've throw 3's...

Great post! I started skiing in college in the mid 70's and kept it up until 94 when I switched to wakeboarding. I have just recently surpassed my years as a skier (trick, slalom, barefoot) with...

Getting your arm caught in the handle happens quite a bit on the cable. One of the riders at OWC is currently recovering from a complete break in the upper arm and has probably a 10"-12" scar as...

For $2000 a year (pass and gear) everyone has the same exact same training opportunities on the cable. And they keep building more cables every year.

If they'd just pull these tournaments with 80's era Ski Nautiques we could all afford to train to be pros.

Well there is one thing worse. The guy that takes so long tightening and hooking up his strings that your line loses several turns to launch.

Boards can get stickier after they wear in. My Jobe Conflict was slicker than snot on the rails when it was new. Might have to hit it with some "Wet n Dry" to freshen it up. OTOH my CTRL RX was...

If you are left foot forward then initially learning behind the boat might be easier. Really depends on the driver and the water conditions. Otherwise the cable is pretty easy. Just a bit more...

What size board is he on now? With that kind of experience he should be able to pick out his own board size just by demoing. Seems to me like a 134 would be about the biggest for his weight.

I think a 140 is definitely too big for a 115 lb person. At this stage either of those boards will be plenty durable for the kid. Once he puts on a few pounds and starts hitting obstacles hard then...

Ear protection with flaps and no board in the head lacerations are a good reason to wear a helmet. I don't buy into the argument that it increases the possibility of concussion. I've never seen any...

The best tip I can think of is just throw the trick. Nothing else works for me. Why not try a regular backroll first?

Best slow motion quality will come from using WVGA 240fps mode at the expense of higher resolution. Here's a clip I made using that mode, regular speed at first then slowed down to 1/8th speed.

Delta, that's exactly how I was landing all my backrolls before I actually stuck one. You are flipping but only about 90% of the way.

I can imagine an I/O with a tilt could make a decent wake. But IIRC that video of Bylerly was behind an outboard with a tiny wake.
