No website that I know of. I don't know if you wish you knew. Hit a couple and then decide I guess.
Just slow down a hair to jack the wake and turn briefly to the inside then whip it back out and around to line the wake up with the bump you created just like you would a normal dup.

Maybe I've just never had one driven correctly for me, but usually a triple up is more trouble than its worth. I can usually get about the same height and a better launch off a d-up. I guess if you are really about charging into a huge wake a tripleup is the way to go. I've ridden into a few that look like they are about shoulder high. Definitely a big wake.

My understanding (how we've always driven them) is to basically drive a d-up, but do a slight pre-turn and loop back around. Instead of hitting the wake straight for the d-up, time it so that you can hit where the pre turn was. Because the boat was turning the wake will be larger and pushed back toward your direction of travel. We usually also slow the boat down to about 18-20 for the preturn to make the wake even larger.

Like I said before, the t-up will be huge and sometimes a bit intimidating to ride into. You definitely wont have to charge it too hard, just roll into it and get your timing right and you'll go huge. Have fun with the landings.

C'mon Lee, you know I hate long posts.
Evan's got it covered. I agree, more trouble than it's worth and it can get sketchy. You can just slow the boat some to increase wake size without making the slight turn and that will bump it up a notch by itself.

drive in a straight line, then make a 90 degree turn and then make a whip in your turn and drive over where you just turned... it is like a L shape with a D-UP is also very hard on the boat because of the roller size.

if you whip it hard and turn inside the pre turn the rider can swing out gaining monentum and let go of the rope and hit the "kicker" that is made by the pre turn and it's kinda like a snowboard or skateboard kicker- it's pretty fun and you definetly get some good air-

Interesting that it's called a "triple up". I guess what else can you call it. But really it's just a double up with an aggresive hook turn to throw a larger wake and then drive through it.

Maybe it just a modified Double, or Double on steriods. Whatever LOL

Don't get me wrong but a true triple would be 3 wakes converging together, Probably only possible if you had two boats working together.
