behind a little 89 invader but i ride behind a big wakeboat sometimes as afew people at my lake have them

I can do 180 grabs, trying to get down tantrums. I LOVE boosting like mad, it feels so good.

Actually, wakeboarding is really hard. (only went two times, i was able to get up and i fell a lot, but i still had fun.)
Besides, you don't see wakeboarders posting threads about their 2 inch dick.

since you are just starting off wakeboarding the ps3 will probably be too aggresive for you. but once you learned to control it, it would be an excellent board because of the 3 stage rocker and the amount of pop it gets. thats just my opinion but if ur set on that board go ahead and get it.

Yea i liked it because of the 3 stage rocker. But do you know of any other good boards that are reasonably priced, brands dont matter to me.

hyperlite premier is a good board. 3 stage rocker, very forgiving, light. also i guess it depends on what you could call reasonably priced. the premier goes for i believe $375 for the 08 or $325 for the 07. to me those are reasonably priced compared to the hyperlite subVI which is $600 or the byerly monarch which is $700. the Ronix frontier would be another good board or the Liquid force substance is another one aswell

ok, so i just started wakeboarding this summer, (got up third try Big Grin ). i've gone out about 5 times and i'm already airing the wake. now according to my buddy whose boat/board/gear i use thats pretty good. can u guys tell me how long you've been riding and how good u are? also, my family isn't 'wealthy' enough to afford a boat, so i'm getting pissed off that i can't progress as fast as i want to because money is a factor and it feels really shitty. do u guys all have ur own boats? and are seadoos any good for wakeboarding?

ive been wakeboarding for 6 years and im just starting to learn 360's, bs 180's and back rolls. i can do w2w hs 180's with pretty much every grabas well as w2w ts 180's. i can ride switch, and do switch w2w 180's. i spent 4 years just riding around benihd the boat and only learned how to jump about 2 years ago, so im not doing that bad for about 2 years. i have my own boat, which is a 04 tige 21i, and im possibly looking at getting a malibu vride next summer. also are you talking seadoo boats or jetskis. niether are good for wakeboarding unless its the wakeboarding versions, then its ok, but i'd still rather ride behind an I/O then an seadoo.

Landed tantrumsBig Grin
Got some backrolls to my feet then washed out too.

I have a little old invader boat, pretty much no wake. The only time I really get to ride is when I go with other people. I get on big boats maybe twice or three times a year, and when I do, I learn new stuff:P

Switch 180=halfcab I think?
