What do you tell riders trying to get up? Light riders, big riders? Outboard boat with ski pylon.

first let a more expeirienced rider go first if you ccan so they get pumped up. Then make sure they have the right sized board. Videos do the best job of explaining how to get up, but one thing alot of them don't say is when the rider is in the water with the handle in their hand and the board in front of them I think it helps to wrap your arms around your knee that will be your lead foot. That way the rope is just little of to the side so the boat can pull the rider up that way. But most of all just relax.

tell them just to let the boat pull them up, and not to try to stand up by themselves because the boat will do that. Also say not to get anxious to turn their board before they are up

i like to have them pull their knees to their chests and wrap their arms around around their knees. ill pull them slowly(idle) at this speed so they get comfortable and dont get panicky trying to stand up to quickly. then ill slowly apply throttle. viola
