Wakeboarding Wakeboarding is a fun and challenging sport A couple of years ago I was boating with some friends when one of them pulled out something I had never seen before a wakeboard In the past I had tried water-skiing and kneeboarding but until then I had never heard of wakeboarding I havent picked up a water-ski or kneeboard since that day A wakeboard is shaped a lot like a snowboard It is 150 cm long and about 60 cm wide Riding a wakeboard has been compared to surfing skateboarding waterskiing and snowboarding At first I was nervous about learning a new watersport at age 18 because I remembered how hard it was to get up one ski My friends convinced me to give it a try and I loved it At first it was hard to get up but after four trys I could get up almost every time on the first pull One of the reasons this sport is so great is that once you get up you can learn and excel very quickly By the end of that same day I was almost able to jump over the wake I have friends who are able to do backflips so this gives me a goal But for now I have to be content with jumping the wake I like this because while there is always another level that Im aiming for I still feel and look competent on a wakeboard While jumping is the first skill that I learned the second skill I began working on was riding fakie Riding fakie consists of riding with the opposite foot on the back of the wakeboard Normally I ride with my right foot on the back of the board this riding stance is referred to as regular While riding with your left foot back is called riding goofy When I first started going fakie it
