Wakeboarding is one of my favorite "boarding" sports because of a few important reasons: It's harder to hurt yourself bad when crashing on water (still possibly of course. I've heard of a guy who broke his sternum.. ow. He was doing a trick called the 911, which most people can't even think about attempting..) Hot weather! Nuff said! (Unless you board in the cold lakes, then more power too you. Hope you have a wet suit!) I like the fact that you can board with a non-variable speed. Meaning, you tell your buddy on the boat to drive 18 MPH (or however you like it), and that's how fast you go. Unlike snowboarding, skateboarding, longboarding, etc, where the terrain effects your speed. So, who else wakeboards here? What do you think of it?
