Winter’s closing in, but there’s still time to learn how to wakeboard better in 2011. To make things easier on you, we’ve assembled The Boarding School‘s top 10 wakeboard how tos of 2011.
In this wakeboarding how to, The Boarding School’s Shaun Murray shows you how to wakeboard better faster by changing the length of your wakeboarding sessions.
Contests are important for wakeboarders of all levels, because they push you to be a better rider. When you’re matched up against other riders and everything is on the table, you can gauge yourself and find out what your strong points are and where you could use a little work.

Personally, I’d much rather watch a wakeboader who grabs and pokes all of his tricks than watch someone go out and do a bunch of not-grabbed mobe 5s or spins. I always try to incorporate style in […]
Learning to control your spins is one of the most important lessons in wakeboarding because it helps lessen the likelihood of injuries and hard, edge-catching crashes. With more control, you can also learn to grab your moves differently and add more rotations to keep your riding fresh and fun. I wasn’t always a strong spinner, […]
If it weren’t for cable parks, I wouldn’t be half the rider I am today. Long before I hoisted three Wakestock rail titles and this magazine named me a Rail Master at the Wake Awards, I spent countless hours doing laps at the Orlando Watersports Complex. In fact, more than half the tricks I do […]
