Here is buddies xray - he'll probabl have a little knee innerspace movie soon.

The top right with the "nubs" shows my missing ACL... the ACL is supposed to attach at the "nubs", bottom left show the stitch in my meniscus, and bottom right is my new jewelry (massive screw...one of 3)

I'm kinda backwards from everyone else lol. I started riding snow to cure my wake jones. It is a brutal sport, had my share of hard diggers. No matter what invest in top level bindings, nice and snug, most knee injuries are caused from a 1 in 1 out crash (where 1 foot comes out the other doesn't)

The main difference between wake and snow is how you use the edges, wieght transfer is about the same, but on a WB you lay it on edge to accelerate into the wake, and flatten to slow down, completly the opposite of a snowboard. Then there is the rope to deal with, you have to keep it in your mind that you are on a pendulem from your tow point, and rope control is key. Whoever said keep it low on the hip was exactly right, feels wierd at first, but this is how you center all your movments, and initiate spins, both surface and air.

Wakeboarding definitely is a rough sport. I've only done it a couple of times myself so I'm not that good but my friend is really into it and I've seen him in the hospital more times for wakeboarding than anything else.

wakeboarding transitions very easily to snowboarding, but im not sure if it works the other way around.

my friend wakeboarded for years before snowboarding. when he finally tried snowboarding he picked it up extremely quickly because the carving and balance required for wakeboarding are very similar.

im interested to try wakeboarding, especially at that cool orlando water park (as seen in "Never Back Down"...haha).
