    The screen on iphones make pics and vids you take on the phone much better quality.

    Looks like great fun but not really a water person

    I go in the ICW too, when you wipeout at the lake and get all that warm stagnant water in your mouth I feel like I'm eating a bunch of parasites and bacteria and shlt. Salt water is much cleaner even if just in my head lol.

    Nice job, try getting some air next time.

    Nice job man!! I love to wakeboard. A little pointer for you, shorten the rope a bit. You will hit wake were it is a little higher, and it will be closer from one side of wake to the other. So when you get a bit better you can clear wake and land on downslope of other side. World of difference on the landing!!

    sweet dude yeh i had planned on that! thx! also i have a question:

    the board i got i think is for beginners as it is very wide and i believe this makes it less maneuverable?? would i benefit by getting a narrower board at some point and if so how??

    Is it just me or is the water look really polluted not sure if i were to do wakeboarding again i will take it back up where you do it. Where my brother goes along the coast here in oz its amazing, clear and calm waters nothing better for wakeboarding.

    They are all pretty short and wide, compared to say a snowboard. A begginner or inexpensive board will not be as responsive or have the pop of the better boards, and be heavier. I woulndt go to narrow tho. A good board will be very thin in depth(top sheet to bottom side that contacts water), twin tip and have fins on both ends on bottom, and lightweight. Fin setup has ALOT to do with responsiveness. With no fins you can stay on water and spin 360's without arcing a turn. Aggressive fins and board bites as soon as you put pressure to the edge and carves quick and tight. I would go middle of the road so you can cut hard at the wake, but still have some forgiveness as you start to spin in the air and wont always land perfectly straight, etc. My advice get a decent modern freestyle board and keep doing what your doing!! Newer ones seem to have multiple fins on both tips. I am not up on all of the current models and designs. A good shop will hook you up. My favorite brand when I rode alot was hyperlight. Great boards, pricey tho.

    I saw your post and jumped in expecting to see a girl with huge cans. Instead it's an old man on a lake.
