Beginner Wakeboarding Tips to help you have fun safely

You need to follow some beginner wakeboarding tips to have fun and excitement the right way in water. The foremost thing is to be comfortable on the wakeboard to drive away the panic factor and be at your ease. After you have adjusted yourself to the most comfortable position of wakeboarding, try to keep your board on its side. While the wakeboard boat starts to pull you, do not put any resistance by trying to pull yourself out and let it tow you and the board out of the water.

You need to know that the comfort of wakeboarding will depend a great deal on the type of board you have chosen. One of the basic beginner wakeboarding tips is to choose a light board with large wakeboard fins to enhance stability, hold direction and ensure faster progress. You need to determine your stance and set your bindings to boost your confidence for wakeboarding.

The position of your feet plays a crucial role in forming your balance while wakeboarding. It is entirely up to you, which foot you want to place ahead - left or right. You can determine your lead foot by stumbling deliberately to see which foot comes up first to support your body.

After this, you have to set up your bindings at your shoulder width apart. Be mindful about placing the back binding slightly closer to the rear fin at a zero degree angle, straight across the board. The front foot should point forward at 9 to 27 degrees. This set up would distribute your body weight a little bit towards the tail.

When the motor boat pulls you to a standing posture, try to shift 50% of your weight on your front foot. When you have jumped clear of the wake, you should ideally have 60% of your weight forward on the board. While remaining airborne, it is important to keep your arms on each side of your front knee and develop a pronounced reclines position to let the motion swing you to an erect position.

One of the crucial beginner wakeboarding tips is never to come up at full speed. You should learn the ropes with a slow start-off pace to have a steady launch. You will eventually find it easier to get up on your feet as the boat towing you takes up full speed. Ask the driver of the boat to increase the speed gradually so that you can feel confident about wakeboarding, staying up and coming out of the water.

The length of the wakeboard rope determines how well you would fare upon the water surface. As a beginner, you should keep the wakeboard rope short to have an easy launch. Ideally, a 45' rope is the best length to get started. Unless you have perfected the art of wakeboarding, sudden jerks could be deadly and scary for your water sport experience. Ask the driver to keep it as slow and smooth as possible for the boat.

Remember, wakeboarding is a difficult and risky sport to indulge in. Hence, do not go into a dare devil venture unless you have received thorough training and beginner wakeboarding tips from an expert. Even after you learn these tips, it will take some time to incorporate them. Therefore, you will need a lot of practice to remain updated with the latest wakeboarding styles, tricks and tactics.
