    Default Wakeboard Driving

    OK, I need help we have owned a boat for over 12 years and just recently upgraded to a 2003 Mobius. I had hoped that by switching from an outboard to an Inboard would help my wife improve her driving, but lets just say that hasn't happened. Does anyone know of a website, book, article anything that I could get and give to her.

    If you're looking for driving tips specific to wakeboarding you can check out wakeboarder.com and they have online tips and a message board where people discuss different driving techniques.
    Do you have wakeboard pro perfect pass, that makes it idiot proof you just have to pick the speed and want to go and drive straight.
    There are a lot of wakeboard sites, videos and magazines that give tips on driving double ups too.

    I'm having the same problems here, but my wife suffers more from lack of experience. I think the best suggestion I've heard so far is to have her sit next to me while I'm pulling someone else and let her watch while I drive.

    I agree with sextons, Perfect Pass (Wakeboard Pro) is sweet. Do not yet have but have experienced. My honey was focused on the speedo and having a tuff time with it early on. Got her pulling me based on the tach and everything smoothed out. She found it much easier to manage 22 rpm than manage the needle movement on a speedo.

    Default Thanks for the Tips

    Guys thanks for all the tips and info. my printer is cranking out documents and she has agreed to read them. I have also decided to let her drive the boat more when the kids and other friends are wakeboarding to get more practice, and will sit next to her and provide instruction. We should get some sets in tonight and again Sunday night so I'll update on Monday.
