Wakeboarding Tricks- The Most Glamorous Aspect Of The Sport Of Wakeboarding

Once you have obtained your wakeboard, arranged for the motorboat, chosen your wakeboarding accessories with care, it is time to go ahead and hit the surf. Beginners are thrilled by the sensation of riding the wake created by the motor boat. However, once you become an expert in wakeboarding, simply riding the wake when being towed by the motorboat can become very boring. This is where the most interesting aspect of wakeboarding enters the picture- wakeboarding tricks.

Whether you are an expert in this sport or not depends on whether you can perform wakeboarding tricks. All wakeboarding competitions are based on the skill and expertise with which the participant can perform tricks. The ability to perform tricks is often considered as the sign of a true expert. Most experts have made their name on the web by providing detailed tutorials, including video tutorials, on performing wakeboarding tricks without any difficulty.

Wakeboarding tricks forms the glamorous and the flamboyant aspect of the sport. The sight of an individual flying above the wake and performing numerous twists and contortions before landing up right on one’s feet is truly a sight to behold.

Not all wakeboarding tricks are meant for experts alone. There are many tricks that can be performed by beginners as well. Needless to say, these are ordinary tricks that can be performed without any difficulty or risks. As one becomes more proficient at wakeboarding, one can move on to more difficult tricks that require above beginner level skill and which also involve slight risks.

It is only when you become an expert can you opt for the truly mind boggling stunts and wakeboarding tricks that involve jumping in the air and performing flips and twists in the air. Keep in mind, you cannot afford to let go of the handle that connects you to the boat even when performing a trick. Doing so will mean you will end up stranded on your wakeboard without any propulsion whatsoever.

If you are planning to perform wakeboarding tricks, you must make sure you have all the necessary safety accessories before you start. You may be a good swimmer and may find it unnecessary to wear a life vest when doing wakeboarding tricks. However, what if you get injured and find it difficult to keep yourself afloat? The vest will ensure you do not sink like a stone. Hence, never ignore safety even if you feel that it is an unnecessary burden.

The numerous tricks can be classified as

- Surface tricks

As the phrase suggests, you do not leave the surface of the water when performing the tricks. Passing the handle from one hand to another is one example of a surface trick.

- Grab tricks

These tricks involve jumping in the air and grabbing the board before landing into the wake.

- Spins tricks

These wakeboarding tricks involve jumping in the air and spinning in the air before settling down.

- Invert tricks

These tricks are very difficult as it involves jumping in the air and flipping over before landing back on your feet. You will land head first in the water if you mess up this trick.

Each and every trick has many variations. This is where the individual can improvise and impress the spectators.
