If you could tell someone 1 piece of advice about wakeboarding; what would it be.

I'll start...............

The rope is your cane. Use the rope as you would a cane; meaning push/pull on it when needed.

For newbies first trying to get up I tell them to "Let the boat do the work".

don't be nervous about riding with new people who might be better than you are. even if you just learned an ollie 180 they will be stoked for you.

No matter what happens, never let go of the handle.

lock eyes to the shore (outwards)........never down

If you leg go of the handle one more time, i'm going to tie a wire from your wiener to the handle...... then lets see if you let go
Old     (stevo8290)      Join Date: Sep 2008       10-18-2010, 9:42 AM Reply   
Well on second thought, let me turn that into advice rather than an ultimatum. Ride everyday like there is a rope tied from the handle to your wiener.... never let go.

If sombody is letting go of the handle take 10 bucks out of their wallet and make them hold it between the handle and hand. Bet they don't let go.
