Stomped is a pretty popular term in wakeboarding. Usually, it refers to a rider cleanly landing a trick — you know, something along the lines of: "You stomped that one, buddy!" The truth is, you should never literally stomp your landings. When you hear stomp, you probably think about slamming your feet into a specific spot like a gymnast sticking a landing off the pommel horse. While it often works for gymnasts, this technique doesn't work well on a wakeboard. When riders try to literally stomp their landings, they land hard and out of control. In fact, it's control, patience and smooth movements that lend your landings that stomped look. In this wakeboard how to, The Boarding School's Kyle Rattray shows you six keys to smooth consistent landings.
