Wakeboarding Basics with Matt Crowhurst: Riding Position



So your textbook riding position is
neutral underneath the cable. You want your hips facing the same way as your
toes and your chest pointing at the carrier. What often happens with your very
first time on the water, is you tend to sit on your back leg, you want your
weight even so get those hips up. Knees and ankles flexed, chest at the carrier. While you do want to stay relatively low on your first few times getting up and
riding, most beginners end up with too much weight on their back foot and their
bump sticking out over their heels. So aim to squeeze your chest up and open to the carrier, while also pushing your hips up so they're directly over the top off
and facing the same way as your feet. Your upper half should be upright and
proud with your ankles and knees flexed forward over your toes.
