Just watched your videos Simply, looks great man! Good form! Chest out, knees relaxed. What do I know though...I'm a nub. I've got great coaches though.
Here is a tip you probably already know, when you land jumps...crush down like a coke can and absorb the landing. A tip that helped me a lot when my GF's sister and her fiance were teaching me.
Nice cable part man. Never been to one. I think you'll love wakeboarding 100x's more if you were able to get behind a wakeboat.
I know I've been referencing my GF's sister and her fiance a lot. I found some articles on them and a video on one.

nope, it's a steady speed, its capable of doing it but they keep it the same.
You can gain more speed in the corners, I think its at 30mph but I am not sure.

Yeah I am really loving wakeboarding. About your hands hurting...my GF's sister and her fiance said to not put a death grip on it. Relax it a little. They also told me not to fully grab it, but to simply for a "C" shape with your fingers and sort of cup the handle. It helped me a lot. Now my hands don't hurt at all, and we ride from 9am-7pm.
Hope that helps, but what do I know...only been riding for less than a month.
I FEEL YA on the falls. The day after, I ALWAYS have whiplash. Sometimes minor, sometimes major. I also have a bruise on my hip that is fairly large, about 5 inches in diameter. I never thought he water could hurt so much haha.
ALL WORTH IT!
Look forward to seeing your vids man! KEEP RIPPIN IT!
Just picked up the Hyperlite ERA Wakeboard Bindings on boardersbestbuy.com. Getting a serious addiciton now.

I have been riding for about 1 1/2 months, its easy to get good at this sport. But the wipeouts are some rough shit.
I fucking love this sport, the only issue is your hands (the handle fucks them up after a couple of hours), I am going to buy some gloves in few minutes and see how they work.
Thoris is getting good, he just needs to lose his fear for the water.
Wakeboarding is never going to be as good as snowboarding, but is the hell of a sport to keep me busy in the summer .
I am going to buy a better camera to get some really good footage, thanks for replying, keeping this section of the forum alive its a pain in the ass.
