For how long are you in that?

I started it recently ( in August ) and got pretty hooked up. Now thinking about probably buying a board..

I've been doing that for about 3 years now......mainly in the summer in Seattle. It isn't too bad there. I'm trying out wakeboarding as my watersport activity next year though.

I do it. Not as regularly as I'd like seeing as I'm as far away from natural waves as poosible in the UK... ugh

Wakeboarding is a sport where you are being pulled by a rope in the back of the boat while you are on a wakeboard, kinda like a surfboard, only a lot shorter. And during the time you're being pulled by a boat at like 20 mph, you try to do flips and rotations (that makes the boat speed even more important, if it is too slow, no flips, too fast, more likely to fail in flipping, more chances of injury when hitting the water) In competition there might be something like an obstacle course involved. Most of the wakeboarders get their training in Florida. Might do that for my honeymoon next summer. :D
