Oli’s first and anchoring thought when approaching boat riding is to make things easier and more efficient. “The less work required, the better,” says the former Canadian national champion. In relation to the setup, he likes to use the outside of the wake as a point of origin. “From here, simply edge out to a distance that will give you enough time to create enough speed to have a good wake-to-wake jump,” he says. This basic step can help give consistency to your approach and, in turn, the trick you are doing.
