Perfecting Your Wakeboarding Tricks

Jun 6, 2008
For those who love the water and are fearless enough to strap yourself on to a moving boat, then wakeboarding is definitely the sport for you. It's one of the fastest growing extreme sports and is an X-games staple. This sport is a unique combination of skiing, surfing and even skateboarding that requires a lot of strength, technique and coordination in order to pull of successfully. Wakeboarding is performed by two people who have to be held in complete trust by one another: the wakeboarder and the boat driver. Timing and communication are the most vital things needed to execute all the trick of wakeboarding properly.

Wakeboarders use the wakes generated by the boat to do astonishing feats of aerial acrobatics. These tricks are judged on their complexity and technicality and given corresponding scores. The tricks you can do when driver and boarder are in harmony are almost endless. Because communication is so important in this sport, the two usually converse through large tower speakers.

To properly master the tricks of wake boarding, watching videos is not a bad idea. A lot of videos have been made on topics that include the rise and history of the sport to trick execution. And almost all of them feature the heroes and pioneers of wakeboarding such as Phillip Combs, Collin Wright, Nick Ennen, Greg Tuman, Charley Patterson, Mikey Ennen, Radar Lake, and Silas Thurman.

It is not only wakeboarders and boat drivers that watch the videos but they are also popular with wakeboard developers. These developers watch tricks being perfectly executed and base models of design on how these tricks are made possible. The sport owes as much to these people as it does to the great wakeboarders themselves for the evolution of the sport.

A lot of places offer these wakeboarding videos. You can get them from wakeboarding shops to video stores. And you can even download or view them online. You definitely would want to take advantage of the jam sessions that pros usually post on the web for others to view. So if you're afraid of having a boring summer, grab a video and see where the waves take you!
