Well the thing with wakeboarding is that you're limited to freestyle, snowboarding has a whole lot of arrays to do. I can say that wakeboarding will never be as fun wakeboarding, but it's a good way spend my summer. Personally I have never been behind a boat, all my riding is done in the cable park. But I have heard that boat is a bit different, you have to set an edge when approach the wake that way you can use it as a ramp. Whats the setup of the bindings?
