I thought surfing was not holding on to anything?

I didn't get that picture. She rode the entire lake wo rope n i did too at 190 lbs. Slack in the rope in the pic. I was shocked it worked just could carve bc it's a small sweet spot.

I got ya. You need to teach the ppl at my lake how to do that. They just go around the whole lake with the rope riding around trashing all the water. I wish I could tell them if your gonna surf at least actually surf. What they are doing is 10mph wakeboarding.

Good job btw doing it with a prostar

I am a skier at heart, so I agree not to tear up others water. I always have boating etiquette when on the water. Most people just tear it up in circles even wakeboarding. I prefer to run the shore then if someone is next to let them go and ride. Crazy wally boats don't know to go back through ur own wake. Drives me nuts. Oh yeah and when u pick up a skier don't hammer it in a circle. Go to idle and idle back to skier.
