What did you, or what will you throw as your first trick of your first set of 2011? I know we all think about it throughout the winter! For me it will be a nice big old method.. only a few more weeks for me!

all I'm asking for is just to be able to perform some sort of Trick lol. I'm still just barely able to w2w let alone put a trick in there some where, keeping my fingers crossed this summer.

I think there is a difference in what I picture in my head and what will actually happen. Picture in head: poked stale HS 3. Actual: heelside straigt air, then realizing the boat pulls harder than i remember/ i am weak and back to basic 180s, maybe some 3s. For sure lipsliding the wake!!

A stalefish heel 3 would be pretty difficult... definitely a bit easier if it is a backside 3. In any case, good luck & have fun!

Wow lot of great riders here if these are the first tricks of the season that you throw. Props to you.

I haven't ridden since October, and my first set will be behind a new boat. I'll be focussed on keeping my board under me. :-)

always start with the wake slashes then the biggest grabbed 180 I can do!

I would feel like such an idiot if I hurt myself trying to throw one of my harder tricks right out of the gate!

I'll probably go with a w2w indy, poking the back leg of course!

Usually my season starts with some edging, carving, a pass or two across the wake just to think about timing and then right into a tail grab. Although last year I was working on a backroll as my first trick every set, who knows. Unless I beg borrow or steal a trip to CA or FL I'm looking at mid May before the ice is off the way winters moving!

Got out on Thursday, and went with a switch outside-in 180 to inside out backside 180. It's the first set. Have some fun with it.

^ haha. Robbie. I like the idea that you even put your 2nd trick. nice.

For my first 2 tricks its the nose grab crow mobe followed by a huge indy tantrum to the flats.....if I could do those tricks, but I cant yet. The idea to do these first trick first set is from a video of Harley on Holden in 2009 doing this. Im new to wakeboarding in these past couple years and things like that made my decision to buy a wake boat and get serious. I didnt know the whole wakeboarding gig had tricks like this until I watched videos and found out their is a pro tour and all the other great things about wake. Cant wait for the season.....hoping for a big year.
