To My Friendly Wakeboarders - Last weekend for the first time in my life I tried to wakeboard. With my sons as witness, I got up, hung on, and stayed between the wakes. A minute was all I could take. I am humbled and have a new found respect for you. I'm here to tell those who don't know that wakeboarding is a lot harder than it looks. I'll stick to skiing, which is my passion, but take my hat off to the wild and crazy wakeboard crowd. - Deerfield

Wicked. Glad you tried it out.

I totally agree they it looks easy but it's very hard.

When watching wakeboard videos like "The Truth" or "Chick Flick" they make everything look effortless and it makes me sick!

I'm a wakeboarder and pretty damn good so I am just the opposite. I rode with a friend last weekend who insisted that I slalom. I was a fish out of the water. Yes, I got up but probably wouldn't get much on style points but man the speed you're pulled at and the arm workout. I have a new respect myself.
