Lots of people rip in their 40s, but I've never seen anyone in their 60s doing inverts on a wakeboard, which can be pretty hard on the knees and back. Even if I stay in good shape, can anyone recommend an age that I should stop flipping?
if you are already flipping remember banana george was 67 and still doing dock starts barefooting.i'd say that might be a little rough on the body too.once you learn it as long as your body holds up you will be fine.
I'm also 32 and what I've learnt is to take a progressive approach to your season. Start off slow and build strength and flexibility. Get good at the things you know you can do safely and get better at them. Poke 'em out, shifties... Once your water skills feel in tune and that you can take a good crash and it feels like you are breaking the water and not the opposite (lol), start going upside down.
The easiest/safest reverts are the TS backroll and then the HS backroll.
I like it- a codgers post!! I am 43- 44 in July and landing rolls and trying a tantrum again- did them 5 years ago and broke my ankle but what the heck- I am trying again. Check out my profile pick- I threw a huge roll!!
