What can you do?

Recommended Posts

Thought it would be a good idea to give everyone the opportunity to share their skill level. I find myself thinking, "Man, that guy must be pro..." So, give it up. If you're a pro - let us know. And if you're only for show - that's OK too. :)

Wakeboarding, Slalom, Foil, Footin', Surfing, Skate, tuber, etc.

Each event has a different language, different techniques, different difficulty levels. Give us what you can do and what you're working toward.

Hopefully this'll turn into a long thread like "What do you do for a living" and everyone will check in.

----------

Wakeboarding has been my sport of choice the last 5 years. But surfing has caught me lately.

Wakeboard - Intermediate: Goofy Foot

- 70' out preferred rope length

- Can get up regular or switch

- W2W jumps HS at 70' out. But only W2W TS at 65' out - should have that down at 70' in the next month.

- TS / HS 180 W2W

- Butter slides HS / TS / 180

- 180 ollies HS / TS

- HS wake to wake method

FAVORITE TRICK: HS W2W grab - can boost high and far into flats.

Working on this season:

- 360 butter slide

- HS 360 W2W

- TS 180 W2W

Surfing: Beginner, just recently dialed in the weight on our boat

- surf without the rope, as long as I want

- pump the wake, back and forward.

Hope to try floaters this weekend and maybe 180's

Skate: Beginner

I can fall alot

- slides, that's about it.

Foil: been once (thanks to pistol pete and Dan P).

Can get up and ride, that's about it.

Favorite Trick: - keep from slamming the foil back down onto the face of the water.

Footin': don't plan on trying it any time soon

I went once, without a barefoot suit. Tried longline start, 3 times Crazy.gif - and had the softball size bruises for a week to prove it.

I slalom recreationlly, used to do a few tricks, not much beside 180, 360 and side slide. Used to ride a 3' disk with no bindings.

I slalom recreationally but would like to ski a course sometime to see how good I am. I'm a beginner wakeboarder. I want to try surfing this year.

But I carry a 3 handicap for golf.

Surfing :

Finally had enough weight in the boat to do it a few weeks ago Sure is fun. I keep thinking I was doing something wrong cause I couldn't go without the rope but when we got the wake right it was easy.

skiing:

Slalom, Barefoot "about 100 yards off a kneeboard" I have jumped when I went to ski camp when I was 9 but just road over the ramp didn't get any distance but to me it was the best, and most air I have ever gotten. I loved it.

22 off on the slalom, which isn't great, but I'm still a relative course newbie.

Wake to wake, wake 180 on the board.

All kinds of mad crap on the disk.

Surface turns on the slalom trick.

Gawking at girlies from the boat.

I just started wakeboarding last year. I'm making decent W2W jumps HS, not quite there TS. I can do wakeslides, surface 180s, get up switch etc. As I become more consistent with my jumps and start trying a few tricks, where should I start?

Wakeboard: I can ride it, but can't tell you the names of the tricks I have thrown accidentally.

Slalom: Recreational for over 26 years ran the course just for the hell of it

Skyski: Riding it for going on 3 years now & learning new tricks every ride!

Started a garage band 21 years ago and have been lucky enough to still be landing some nice gigs to date.

Only bragging right I have is that I can keep my stuff cleaner than just about anyone.

I'm fairly proficient at most things behind the boat...skiing, boarding, footing, kneeboarding, drinking.

Edwin forgot to mention he is the king of the greatest wakeboard move ever, the Sausage Grab.
