Wear a helmet, be prepared for your board to get jacked up, keep the handle pulled in and as low as possible, like down around your knees, and keep your eyes on the far end of the slider where you want to drop off, instead of looking at the point where you're gonna get on. Have fun.

I'd also say lean forward, do not lean back or you will skip onto your ass. It's not like a board slide on the water, you want to be perfectly centered over the board. Have fun. Use a beater board.

I youve ever ridden rails on a snowboard... that transfers over... you probably wont go out the front (like soneone said, keep your weight forward) it'll be a lot more slippery than water.

Rails on a wakeboard are a lot easier then rails on a snowboard because the board is wider and therefore, keeping your weight perfectly centered is slightly less crucial. That said, it is true that the rail is a lot slicker than the water. Most folks ride a wakeboard on water leaning back against the pull of the rope, and when you hit that slider in that same position, your board will go ZING!!! right out from under you. Just keep your weight centered over the balls of your feet and you'll be fine.
