In this wakeboarding how-to, The Boarding School’s Shaun Murray shows you how to find the perfect wakeboard stance for your style of riding.
The basic idea of wakeboarding is to keep the board going with you on top of the water. It seems simple enough, but here’s why I say such an obvious thing. It’s much easier to keep the board going with you if your body is over or, more specifically, on top of the board.
Upon landing tricks, do you find yourself being pulled forward and fighting to keep the board going with you, and sometimes suffering painful edge catches? We all fall sometimes, but if you could, would you fall less?Your stance may be too narrow if you’re getting pulled out the front frequently. Keeping your upper body leaned away from the boat is the most important thing to keep the board going with you.
