This is the most important part of any level wakeboarder’s riding. It is also the most overlooked. Tricks above this level build from and are directly related to these fundamental skills. Most riders often skip past these more basic parts of riding and move straight to attempting huge flips and spins. Eventually they hit barriers in progression due to flaws in their fundamentals. If you take the proper steps and learn the proper fundamentals from the beginning you can avoid eventual barriers and you will find yourself on an easier path toward your goal tricks.
