So, Ive wanted to barefoot forever. Got up off a wakeboard this summer, and have been doing that since. I ordered a barefoot suit, got it thurs afternoon, got up from a deep start Friday afternoon after 6 attempts. Im hooked! And officially a barefooter. Im going again tomorrow, so hopefully can get some pics or video. It was behind a '03 Bayliner Capri btw :)

Great job! You will find footin to be a love hate relationship. Nothing like gliding across the water at 40+ mph but catch a toe and well there is nothing like that either :). Have a blast and keep your toes up!

Right on! I was hooked from the first time as well. I've almost stopped wake boarding and skiing.

Way to go! You'll find that the barefoot suit makes a huge difference. If you don't have them already, you should consider adding padded shorts under the suit to make life even more comfortable.

I think I need to get one, butt kills!!! I spent sat afternoon barefooting too, by the end I had no ddie to attempt tumble turns like I planned on doing once I started getting up regularly.

Sweet, now your hooked!

You love a tug from an inboard. It will cut your drag time by more than half, and make more foot time on top of the water. Remember to bend those knees!

That's awesome! Nothing wrong with a Bayliner.....you just work with what you got!

I learned off of a 79' Cobalt with a "deep" vee. We tied two ropes together to get us back far enough out of the prop wash. We did it and it was awesome! When we went to the smaller SeaRay....major upgrade! The boat was quicker and wake MUCH small!

I do love my MC's wake and power now though....:cool:
