Default Wakeboarding?

With the return of our boat and my love of snowboarding, I plan to start wakeboarding this summer. I am just wonder how is it similar/different from snowboarding. I would greatly appreciate any help/links to get me started.

It's sort of similiar, but not really close. For example, on a wakeboard you don't have to keep an edge, but it's a lot easier to catch one. Obviously there is no slowing down when you want to so you have to be comfortable at keeping that speed at all times. There are similiarites in board control though. If you can handle yourself on a snowboard you should do fine on a wakeboard.

I can't fucking wait to try wakeboarding this summer. My friend went every weekend last summer and I never really gave much thought to it but he's been telling me a bit about it and it sounds pretty fun, and from what he says it sounds a lot easier than snowboarding I would imagine water could be pretty painful at high speed though because it won't let you slide the wreck out like snow, I picture it just kind of grabbing you and stopping your ass dead in your tracks Whiplash.
