Hitting a kicker is like no other feeling in wakeboarding. Sure double-ups send you big, but nothing will take your riding as high and as far as the kicker. After all, would you rather do a 20-foot indy glide or a 100-foot indy glide? In addition to making every trick bigger and better-looking, the kicker is also a great teaching tool because its extra boot gives you more time to work on the mechanics of a trick. In this wakeboard how to, learn to dial in your kicker fundamentals so you can not only take your current list of tricks to stunning new heights but also unlock more of the moves that have eluded you off the wake.
