There was a good article a year or two ago in WB Magazine about how to drive double-ups. I'll look for it tonight and scan it if I can find it.

Here's what I've tried so far (I'm new at this too)

Riders with "regular" stance:

I take a quick 90 degree left turn and go straight about 200-300 yards, then turn right in a wide sweeping style until I make a large loop with the boat and end up going across my own wake that I created when I was going straight before. I try to cross that wake head-on at a right angle. (Think of the wake as a car that you want to hit broadside)

The rider will start on the inside of your "loop" and hit the double-up from there.

For "goofy" riders, just reverse the process.


You can eliminate the first step (90 degree initial turn) but we ride on a river so we're limited on space.

think of making (driving) a "question mark" and come through the first turn, that worked for me, start with that and you'll get the feel for it!

What the hell are you guys talking about??? this wakeboarding stuff is too complicated. I tell my driver, "go STRAIGHT that way at 32 MPH until I fall or stop." End of instructions.

Had the same question and the site above sort of explained it: http://www.thewakeboardcoach.com/newsite/
Click on tips and tricks at the top and then click on "Double Up" .
One of the things talked about is Ricky McCormick doing a flip on the trick ski and I saw him do it several times in competition, one of the collest things I ever saw and always brought the crowd to its feet!!!
