If you know how to get up on a wakeboard try this it worked for my brother in law…
Hold the board & handle together on the top rail. Kick your feet up on the board and grab the bottom rail with your free hand. You will be in a ball with the board locked to your feet. Tell the drive to “hit it” and as it starts to pull you can let go of the board. This will put your board more on top of the water on the start, more like on a wakeboard. I suggest buying, eating, & sleeping the “SNAP” dvd and let Aaron Reed show you how.
