female Wakeboarding at 53

Okay, I posted a few years ago my learning to snowboard video when I turned 50. I have been waterskiing for 15 years - my husband has been trying to get me to wakeboard since I started snowboarding. I just feel very comfortable on skis and the wakeboard just seemed too squirrely. Plus I like my arms in front of me - not twisted sideways. We had been skiing/wakeboard off the back of the boat. After skiing one day this guy next to us heard me defending NOT wakeboarding and he said he could get me up in 3 tries with his tower. I thought about it for 10 minutes then finally took him up on his offer to try off the tower on his boat as he says it is much easier to get up with a tower. We have a cheap wakeboard with Velcro straps we've been using to learn on. Well, take and look and see how I did! If anything for a good laugh!
