so this coming season i wanna start doin some comps. one problem, i have NO clue what level i am. im 15, about 140 lbs. (if that has anything to do with it), i can do an indy grab, a 180 (one wake), clear the wake, ollie, ollie 180, nose grab. thats pretty much it. im guessin that'd put me at the lowest category. but is it not enough to a point where i'd be wasting my time? i just wanna see what you guys think. and if you think its not enough to compete, would you let me know what tricks i should be able to consistently stick before i embarrass myself? i've been riding since like second grade and cant do just ready to step it up and go somewhere with wakeboarding. thanks

no dude, that's they beauty of a grass roots contest, they make a division for virtually everyone. Just go compete, you'll probably meet some really cool people that you can ride with, and the more you ride the more stuff you can learn. Don't worry about how many tricks you have.

i dunno nuthin, but according to this page, if you're inrolled in college, you could participate in Collegiate Nationals: id=1

the same page also mentions that mens novice level is 1 invert or less.

so here's the plan: study hard, practice wakeboarding, get into college and go to the nationals!

oh yeah, don't forget to have fun doin it all!!

no no no no wait wait wait wait just one minute...... if your competeing your never wasting your time unless YOUR not having fun! So long as you can cut from one side of the wake to the other, theres always a place for you in a comp (if you can't i'd say at least learn that one the week before the comp)... but you get the point. I'd say you'd be in novice and i'd say that will be just as rewarding in the 'having fun stoked' feild as if you were advanced/pro/outlaw whatever! I admire the confidence to go out and do it, alot of people are just too scared with no reason what so ever to feel that way. Stage fright and shyness are the devil!!

Grant- you are a Novice rider, and exactly what Thane Dog said, grassroots events have a division for everyone. Just go out to have fun and meet new people- check online in the Events section here or your local shop or in 2006

Paul, it's collegiate nationals next week, and unless he's in college at the ripe old age of 15, I dont think he will be competing...Just thought I might clear that up.
