Wake Velocity and Lifting Forces - Flyboy Blog

From Flyboy (James Walkers) blog. A great article on surfing forces that may turn on a few light bulbs and create what I like to call "Ah ha" moments.

This article is a MUST READ for all beginner and even avid wakesurfers.

jeeze, all that research for wakesurfing?! haha I guess i don't understand the logic behind the article. Surfing is a relatively simple sport, in terms of the basics of riding a wave. now when you start getting into three-shoves i could maybe understand putting in more logic to make the wake better.
