Did a little surfin' yesterday - as usual my local lake is too busy/rough this time of year to ski.
It's actually not that difficult, especially if you have ever wakeboarded. The start is pretty much the same. No bindings but when the boat is put in gear the forward momentum presses the board against your feet.
When you are ready yell 'hit it' and twist the board as you come up and there you are!
But don't get too cocky cuz...
then there you're not!
When you get good (like I'm not), you toss the rope into the boat and just ride the wave like Ryan here...
As said before, lottso' fun and a great balance trainer, but you need a fat wakemakin' inboard boat with the prop UNDERNEATH because you're just a few feet back!
