I am going to take a 20 day trip to Camsur in November…...

My ability: I have been wakeboarding (99% behind the boat...been to OWC 2 days) about 20 months. I can do some grabbed FS 180s, but the HS ones come and go. TS is much better. I do them late & pretty big with the off hand so I can grab. My TS jump is good…..much better than my HS. I can take grabbed TS jumps into the flats. Landed a few HS BS 180s W2W (short rope) recently. Been starting to try TS BS 180s, mainly surface drills to get the handle move down. No 3’s yet. I have played around with HS and TS backrolls (slow/super short rope), but a nagging ankle injury really holds me back on inverts… I can ride blind and cuffed both reg and switch. Ollie BS 1’s are dialed regular…but my SW ollie is non-existent. Normally ride at 20.5-22.5 mph. Once in a while I will go long at 23 mph+. So that is a summary of how I ride….

What is the best approach to cable riding to help your behind the boat riding? Sure…I want to hit some sliders…and ride cable just for the sake of cable…but I would also like to spend some time working on things that will make be a much better all around rider.

Some things that come to mind….it seems like the impacts will be a lot less…and trying some raleys, backrolls, and TS backrolls at the turns will be good. Spins off some small kickers will be sure to help my spins off the wake. I am a regular footed rider, and CWC is counterclockwise….so that means any air tricks at the corners will be TS or SW HS. Can you do air tracks away from the corners? What about a bellair? Is that a good way to learn a tantrum smaller with less impact (With my messed up ankle, I am terrified of the dreaded tantrum ankle) I would like to have all 8 ollie 180s down…though TS BS ollie 180s are pretty funky…and maybe not worth the effort…

Do you ride the same size board behind the cable as behind the boat. I am about 175#, and ride a LF Witness 140. Seems like with the UP pull of the cable…you could ride a smaller board. Should I stay with a 140, or go 136? I will get a LF Witness Grind for the trip….

I know these are a lot of questions….. thanks for any advice you can offer…
