First off, I'll warn you this isn't some high quality video with any high quality riding. I started riding in June this year, and It was shot tonight with just a basic camera. I made this more for myself so that next year I have something to look back on and see how much better I'm doing. It was all filmed in less than half an hour on my pond tonight so excuse the quality.
I was riding behind a Honda Jetski (You'll see the wake I'm working with haha). Currently in the process of extending the lake and trying to get a SANTE in there for next year. I have a thread in the boat section somewhere with pictures of everything.
My buddy who I snowboard with alot, got me into wakeboarding this year. So we towed behind the jetski most of the summer. I got to go out on a friends X-15 about 6 or 7 times as well. I thought I did decent this year considering what I had to work with. Had alot of fun passing the summer away. And now I can't wait until next year. Hope you guys enjoy. Any comments or tips are appreciated.

I see why you want to dig out your lake more.It's small,but it's still cool having a private lake that's big enough to ride on.Nice vid.I saw your post in the home lake thread.I'm from Cleve. so it stuck in my mind.What do you ride behind?

Its only a honda f-12x. I wasn't blessed enough to ride behind a boat or own one this year so I made do. Next year stuff should really be going on though especially if a boat is in the future. So since you're from Cleveland if you ever want to ride some glass next season let me know.. You're welcome to ride. Could always use a third.

Sounds great.You'll have to come to Cleve. sometime also and try some deep water next year behind my boat.You can really get some air off its wake if you're doing that good on that wake.Not ripping your wake,got to make due with what ya got.You're doing great though.

Great job with all your tricks and riding. Can wait to see the video if you get behind that SANTE your talking about. Good luck with the lake and getting a boat on it! Keep up the progression.

im with John... you make me want to give up. Nick, did you figure all that out on your own or did you have coaching? And if you say on your own i might just shoot myself

Haha, Mostly through the summer I only had my dad pulling me and what not. But like I said I was a prior snowboarder. I have never been to a clinic or had a coach, so I guess you could say I taught myself. I just couldn't get enough once I started so I pretty much went out whenever I had the chance to and tried to learn something new everytime. But I had some help from watching Detention 2012. And I am off to the Boarding School this winter as well.

Yeah, It slowly drops around that time on. But currently it's still useable. The hardcore guys are still out there. Around November is when people completely stop using it.

Awesome progress on jetski, hell awesome period.

Also, I liked that you had longer shots in your vid. It's a nice change from the trick, cut, trick, cut, etc.
