A little Wakeboarding...

Doug/MarkP/Andre and Others,

Any of you do any wakeboarding after your slalom runs?

Brian, we've got one, and we, well my wife, has been on it once this year. I have decided that skiing is what I enjoy the most, although I may break out the wakeboard a little later this summer. Usually, we break out the kneeboard instead after the slalom runs.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Andre`-
Are you wanting to get rid of that tower?
Do you think it will fit a 1996 ProStar 190?

Beau

I ride the wakeboard or kneeboard after I slalom. You can only slalom so much before your hands quit, or you're tierd. I'm ok on the wakeboard. I can jump wake to wake, and turn around. That's about it. I used to be able to do barrel roles on a kneeboard when I was 13/14. Now I just do 360's and jump a litte. Everyone that comes out with us though wants to learn to wakeboard. I like having the fly high pole though. It's good for wakeboarding and kneeboarding from the standpoint of using the back seat. THe PS 190 isn't exactly a plethra of space.

My tower

Sorry Beau.Not for sale...Got it with the boat and the mounts are still on it,i would have to have those holes patch,no big deal,but the main reason for me to keep it is that they are less and less hardcore slalom skier outhere and when it will come time to sell my 190 for a Mal...Sorry another MC,i think it will sell a lot faster and better with the tower on.
Too bad,i think there is about half hour use on the "THING"...


JUST KIDDING ABOUT THE M... Thing!!!

That's cool Andre.
I am just getting into slalom skiing. My wife slaloms and has just gotten into wkaeboarding this past year. She will usually start out slaloming then wakeboard. I can't let her outdo me now...

Not to start a war in here, but I think (my opinion) it's harder to slalom. It's definitely harder to teach someone to get up slalom then wakeboarding. I would ***ume that's one of the key reasons wakeboarding has taken over. However, while I was down at ski school the pros told me they were seeing a strong shift back to skiing. I guess we'll see...

I would probably agree with you on the getting up part. We can usually have someone up within a few pulls. People always ask which foot to put forward. The best way to decide that is to ask if you were to run and slide on a hardwood floor with socks on, which foot would put forward?
Wakeboarding gets pretty difficult when you start trying tricks. Even though you are not going 30+MPH on a wakeboard, it still hurts a bit when you fall from 6-10 feet up onto the side of your head.
