My Hubs

Robert just started wake boarding 3 years ago. Sounds like a long time, but we've probably only been down during the summer for him to practice a handful of times. (We are working on getting down LOTS more).

He's gotten very good.  Like, lookout 'cause I'm coming all the way over the wake one handed, good.

The funny thing is he can't even ski.  Well, he can sorta ski.  It's just the most hilarious thing you've ever seen.  Now that video could probably land us on America's Funniest Videos again.  Hmmm.....

I think he should just stick to wake boarding.

He looks so much hotter doing this anyways.

Occasionally, something like this happens:

Makes for a not so nice landing.  BUT, they are coming less and less frequent!

We're trying to find another trick for him to learn.  I think he called it "riding switch".  But I'd have to go to a wake boarding dictionary to see what it means.

Maybe one day he'll be able to flip!  How cool would that be!


  1. GREAT SHOTS!!! I laughed as I read your comment about him looking hotter wake boarding that skiing...I love to ski - but by the end of a long run, my knees are bending in...I look anything, but hot. Maybe I should take up wake boarding. :)

  2. God, I love wakeboarding. I miss it so much!

    Riding switch is easy--it just means that the opposite foot from normal is forward. You an either ollie (jump) to switch feet, or you can slow the boat way down to like 12 or 15 mph, and look over your front shoulder, which forces your hips to turn.

    I TOTALLY recommend the "Higher Education" Wakeboard Instruction DVDs (you can get them on Amazon). They are really helpful. We used to show the first lesson or two anytime we were teaching people how to wakeboard, and it really helped.


If you don't have anything nice to say, then, please don't say anything at all! THANKS!
