Life jacket!!

Recommended Posts

68Slalom

If anyone has had this issue, we have a crew member of ours that has a hard time flipping back into position on their back once they go down from falling off the wakeboard. I was hoping some of you have had experience with a specific brand jacket (or something else product wise) that is designed to help get you turned over when you are floating on your stomach and trying to get turned around onto your back.

Thanks

The only thing I could suggest if he can't spin the board around is to try to do a somersault in to the water kicking the board over him. Other than that Dontknow.gif

It's a she and it may have a lot to do with the weight of the board, I may have to look at that laster but I was hoping there was a life jacket (or some kind of floating waist devise) that I could try and see if it helps first.

Some people have problems trying to lift the weight of the board, try getting her to push down on one foot while pulling the other end up, sinking the board instead of trying to lift it out of the water.

Maybe not the same as with a board, but when I have people bobbing around with combos I tell them to do a turtle roll. Really makes no sense as I sit here thinking about it, but it usually works. Dontknow.gif

Perhaps she should draw in her knees, then push against the board while rolling over (barrel roll). I would think trying to 'sit up' when you're face down just aint gonna work.
