Got up with deep start

So, Ive wanted to barefoot forever. Got up off a wakeboard this summer, and have been doing that since. I ordered a barefoot suit, got it thurs afternoon, got up from a deep start Friday afternoon after 6 attempts. Im hooked! And officially a barefooter. Im going again tomorrow, so hopefully can get some pics or video. It was behind a '03 Bayliner Capri btw

Great job! You will find footin to be a love hate relationship. Nothing like gliding across the water at 40+ mph but catch a toe and well there is nothing like that either . Have a blast and keep your toes up!

Right on! I was hooked from the first time as well. I've almost stopped wake boarding and skiing.

Way to go! You'll find that the barefoot suit makes a huge difference. If you don't have them already, you should consider adding padded shorts under the suit to make life even more comfortable.

Sweet, now your hooked!

You love a tug from an inboard. It will cut your drag time by more than half, and make more foot time on top of the water. Remember to bend those knees!
