my advice....and i'm not a great rider....but i would say to make sure and get your edging technique right and don't start out by hucking your first inverts. i know more than one person...me included...who are trying to destroy their existing muscle memory this summer due to poor technique when we first started riding and inverting. improper edging will make progression very....very....difficult. good luck...and welcome to the addiction!

okay...if you're that new and you really do want to get better, my advice is to go to your local pro shop and buy one of the basic wakeboarding tutorial DVDs....detention...the book....just ask the guys, they'll point you in the right direction.

Definately get a wakeboard instructional! It will help with your basic understanding of the correct skills and the way to learn them.

Stay off the lake and let others have the fun. j/k :-)

Actually, a tramp does wonders and going out on the lake/river as often as you can will also help.

Definitely get the fundamentals down;
Learn proper edging- (progressive edge - edging all the way through the wake- and proper loading).
Toe side jumps - try everything both heelside and toeside.
Switch ride (riding with other foot forward)- always work on this- will help you later on.

Video a definite (Dentention or The Book).
