You ski them like you're barefooting. They are a common practice aid (modern version) used to learn new tricks, while slowing your speed. You would do a deep water barefoot start to get up.

I'm a bit surprised by the OP.

The windshield is what it is. It hasn't changed in years, and if you're unhappy with the design, don't buy the boat. That is not a mechanical malfunction surprise. ...
