The reason that it is such a great thing is that no one is right, and for the sake of the matter, no one is wrong either. Wakeboarding is an act that can be interpreted differently by every person who sees it. Each person who wakeboards or witnesses wakeboarding has come from a different path than the next person. There may be similar paths, but they are never exactly the same. Some will come from a waterski background and some will come from a snowboard background. Some will even come from a background that has nothing to do with any type of action sport. Wakeboarding will be their first time riding some sort of apparatus. And from those backgrounds and what they read in magazines and watch in videos, they will start to form an opinion on certain things. They will start to like things and dislike others. They'll like the way one rider rides a wakeboard and dislike the way another rides. The amazing thing about it is that almost always your opinion will be different than the next person.
