    it(39)s not on a bayliner.... but...-gctid404167

    it was soooo much fun! This is how we spent our weekend! I'm new to wakeboarding, only my second season, just now beginning to be able land some jumps without wiping out everytime. Wish I had taken up this sport 20 years ago lol!





    wipe out!

          Sweet pic's!

          I really want to try wakeboarding, but am afraid of hurting myself! Plus, I need someone else to drive the boat and have to have a safety spotter, but still want to try!

          Thanks for sharing!

            dude, what's with the jet-skiers right behind your boy who is wakeboarding? where i come from, that equals a beat down disrespecting fellow boaters like that. if you're boy goes down, that dumbass runs right over him

                  Im 48 with 2 kids aged 4 and 10. I have been wakeboarding now for 2 years but have yet fully learned to jump wakes. Getting up is easy especially if you have snow boarded before. Lots of youtube videos to get going. Thats how I learned to get up.

                  I was out 2 days ago and I still can't fully move yet but LOADS of fun.

                  Age is nothing. (esp when you have to keep up with my kids)

                    my first season was horrible, I was getting keel hauled more than anything lol! I just wasn't getting the trick of getting up, but when I did it was like "D'OH!" should have done that first! Now I'm really getting into it, I may have to get another boat lol!

                      It sure looks like fun. I'd not try it at my age now ......., but sure wish that I would have years ago.

                      As for the waverunners, I understand how fun it is to jump wakes......., but I would flag them off.

                      That could be very dangerous, and things happen out there so dang fast.

                      I think that the River Patrol would frown on that, and perhaps cite them given the right mood.

                          awesome! He's a lucky kid! My folks weren't boat people sadly, my kid however will be wakeboarding soon! She's 8 and she's able to get up but can't keep her balance just yet, I think by the end of the season she'll be better than her old man

                            Hey thanks all again, I am almost (cough, cough) 40, have three kids, 5,3 and newborn (well, end August will be here!), so I guess there is hope of me wakeboarding yet! Yeehaw!

                              Its not too bad to learn - I'm 42 and learned how to board at around 36. Kids are 21,15,14 I still prefer to slalom ski 99% of the time though. My wife prefers to board as did both boys until last week when the 15 year old decided to try slalom skiing and I think I got him hooked.

                              Main thing is to get a board that fits the rider. My wife used to bob around like a cork on the CWB that my sons and I use, picked her up a much smaller girl board and it made all the difference. Same thing for small kids - don't try to teach them on something meant for a 180lb adult.
