How do you wakeboard for the first time?
Getting up on a wakeboard is all about letting the boat do the work. To start, get lined up with the boat, with your arms straight, resting on your knees. Your knees should be slightly bent. When the boat starts to go, let your knees bend as much as you can, with your butt crunched down towards the board.
Is it hard to get up on a wakeboard?
Getting up on a wakeboard can be challenging because there are a lot of things that need to occur with the right time and sequence. But the main issue is that learners typically try to pull themselves out of the water instead of letting the boat pull them.
Does it hurt to fall on a wakeboard?
While there is risk for physical injury in wakeboarding, there is evidence that these injuries can be prevented. Lacerations to the head and neck, as well as concussion, are common injuries in wakeboarding. When thrown into the water, the hardest impact often occurs to the head.
