Wink Finally I am successful!!!

So this was the third time at the cable park and on my first time out I managed to go around the course without falling on those fucking turns. It turned out that my major problem was handling the speed that the turn creates.

I am pretty stoked about it, now is when the sport gets expensive. I need a new helmet, because the helmet that I rent is florescent yellow and that basically screams !!!NEWBY!!! (not that I am not a one, but still you know ). Then theres the nice looking life vest but thats another story.

So far I enjoy it a lot, but today I found out that the late afternoon crowds are loaded with kids. I am going to stick to early morning, that way I can get more runs for my $$$. Either way after 2 hours of ridding you are dead, thats a fucking nice workout.

I will post more pictures later on.

^^^^^^ I know, it sucks I was alone so I didn't even take an pictures. Next week Ill take a friend with me and I will take a video, it sucks that my didgital camera does not have an optical zoom, but I will try to get a good vid either way.


Now I am so fucking sore, but overall my body is responding pretty good to the sport.

Are you kidding me, wake boarding demands way more than snowboarding does. The workout you get in the upper body is insane, yesterday I realize how unfit I am. Although maybe snowboarding is much harder one the legs, but is also debatable. I wish I could afford it to do it more often, but right now I am not able to do it.

Can you learn from scratch in a cable park, or should you try wakeboarding behind a boat first? And what does it cost to do the cable park and rental?
