I saw a video on youtube where they stand sraight up in the water to start too. Seems odd. Didn't think that would work on a wakeboard though. I just bought a cheap world industires one today from work. We carry their vendors jet ski stuff and not knowing how much we were going to ride I thought I would give it a try.
Excited to switch it up a little.
Remember that time we went fishing... said no one ever!!!
