When you're just learning slower is better.. I pull beginners at around 12-15 mph.
2- I'd second what Kevin said before.. As long as you put your seat belt, and footstraps on it's next to impossible to get hit by the foil
*I've barfooted/slalomn, boarded.. and I'd have to say Skysking is by far my favorite. You can ride on water that's got a little chop, you wont get tired after 3 sets, and the air you can get is incredible. Only thing I can compare it to is snowboarding or skiing through nice deep powder, its like floating above the water. Good luck, fly high,
