It seems like every time I'm out on a public lake there's some guy whipping huge turns under full power to double back and pick up a fallen rider — seriously, every time, without fail. The problem with power turns is that they send rollers all the way down the lake, generally transforming a nice day on the water into a huge churning mess. Power turners also bounce everyone around in the boat, surround fallen riders with a ton of huge rollers and waste a bunch of gas unnecessarily. Long story short, drivers who power turn are jerks — no different than the telemarketer who calls your house at 7 a.m. on a Saturday. In this wakeboard how to, follow these steps for perfect pickups. You'll not only keep the entire lake much calmer, but you'll also actually pick up your rider faster than you would with a power turn.
