    Are any of my fellow Titan fans into wakeboarding? I ask because I'm days away from closing a deal for my first speed boat, and am anxious to try my hand at wake boarding and water skiing. Was looking for any tips you guys may have. If you click that blue text above you can see the type of boat Im getting, mine wont be new as I cant afford a $100k toy but will be pretty close performance wise.

    Getting up on the board is the hardest part. Once you get up it's really fun.

    What kind of shape are your leg's in? Waterskiing takes a lot of lower body strength and muscle endurance. You will probably be sore for a few days the first time you do it.

    Lather yourself in baby oil and jump off a sheer cliff for maximum training potential.

    If you plan on bringing your kids on board be sure to get some appropriately sized PFDs for them. And make sure they wear them. You know, since it seems like you actually care about your kid's. Also you probably should take a course in boat safety. I am sure someone like the coast guard or state police will have one for you to take.

    Nice! Do not want to be like a douchebag NFL player and go out there having no idea what you are doing.
