35 off @ 36 mph, I clipped the buoy with my back leg which tossed my ski off edge, the front re-grabbed and out the front I went. Back font came out but the front came out to late

My father had a bad wreck about 14 years ago on a ski, not sure what happened but when he went down he got the ski just behind the ear, kooled him good, he came to in the ambulance. Good thing buddy towing him was the fire chief and knew a little first aid. He got ten staples in the back of his head from it.

And me, I new catching an edge hurt, but didn't realize how much.

Stops you right in your tracks. That's why I wont ride a wakeboard anymore. I've been clocked one too many times and obviously enough to learn that I am better off footing!

barefoot only ..

I'll pass on wakeboards!
I wouldn't attempt to ride one again, know of many friends that tore either their (ACL'S) or (ICL's)
in their knees from riding.

I as areamike agree, I'm better @ 44MPH on both feet!

The first time I finally got my son to hold his edge going up the wake he got a good pop and freaked out. I just love the look on his face. I asked him if putting his hands down helped break his fall? You can't ride it out if you don't have the handle!

What kind of bindings? I did something similar at 32 MPH. Bindings didn't release, not broken, but doc said season is over.
