I was just wondering how fast a person should be learning new tricks? I am 14 and I started Wakeboarding in May of this year(03). I have learned most wake to wake grabs H/S and T/S 180s across wake H/S and T/S and I have pretty well mastered the H/S tantrum H/S backroll H/S 360 and I have Finally landed the airraley The last two times out. But now it seems like I need instruction on what tricks to work on next. So I am kind of curious at what pace do most riders learn new tricks. I go out at least 5 if not more times a week thanbks to my dad who says that I am picking this up fast. but he is bias so i want to know what pace others learn at.

you seem to be learning very fast... try combining some of your ticks.. tantrum and a 180 (i'm not the greatest with trick names) or backroll with a 180... stuff like that.. try a 540... There are many more ticks you can do...

It sounds like you're improving at a good rate, however, it also sounds like your real strengths lie entirely in your regular stance heelside edge. Learn all your inverts switch and start doing the basic toeside inverts, such as front rolls, back rolls & scarecrows.

Hey Thanks Matt we went out this evening and it took me 3 trys to land the T/S frontroll after that I had no problem with it.

I'd say you're learning REALLY fast, I've been riding for three years and am still working on grabs... however I only get out once a week if I'm lucky. I'd say pick up an instructional like Detention or Higher Education and keep power housing through it, who knows maybe we'll see ya on the pro tour someday . Anway, good luck and HAVE FUN!!

That's great Tony! Scarecrows are even easier than front rolls. Do a front roll and then pull your handle into your back hip and look at the boat on the landing. It sounds like you'll stick it tonight.

I think one of his advantages is that he is 14 and still indestructible. A fairly serious injury in life (most athletes have had one or two by the time they are 30) will throw a reality check into just how much risk you want to take. I wish I was 14 again haha.

Seriously though, you are progressing very rapidly (5 days per week will do that).

Tony. You sound like a natural. I hate you. Just kidding!

I'd bet an instructor could teach you a lot. You should check out a Wakeboard camp.
