yeah I'm definitely gonna get a new pair of boots as well... again leaning towards the '11 watson boots or harley boots. The new slingshot lyman seems pretty legit, but just not sure how I would like a slingshot. Never been behind one. Again, call me cheap but I just have never been able to get myself to spend $1,000 on a wakeboard setup.
Oh and btw, I do 100% of my riding behind the boat.
Good point on the flex being a bit easier on my leg...
