Hi... first time here but look like a great forum to be !!! I just started doing some wakeboard at my friend place; went there about 5 times and Im wondering if you guys could give me some tips for turning (or carving). Do you have to lean forward/backward or push on your heels/toes or rotate your hips !?

Thanks

whatever you do, don't lean forward or you will faceplant. Position your weight to your back foot and practice your heelside & toeside edges. Tell the boat drive not to drive as fast at first maybe 18-20 MPH until you get more comfortable.

I would recommend picking up some instructional dvd's if you can such as higher learning that would be really helpful.
