    If I try a flip and land on my face it is going to feel like a 25 year old Arnold Schwarzenegger repeatedly punched me in the face.

    I have to feel it. I won't attempt it until it feels right... and I don't wakeboard enough to practice or anything.

    Nope hence the thread.

    Ive belly flopped off a high dive before, so I know water can be painful, but its still water in the end. Ive also flipped over the handlebars off the 12th step face first onto pavement with the bike smashing me in the back, thats pain.

    I live on a lake and love to watch boarders from my pontoon boat. I have several friends that board but I am usually worn out from cycling in the morning. I use to be a good water skier and know how to pull a wake boarder but my true talents are balancing on a boat while drinking beer.
    My first bit of adivse is to invest in a gas station before you buy this boat.

    The only boats I know of aside from a submarine that you intentionally pump water into.

    Yes the difference is that I fill my ballast with beer. I don't make a big wake but I can sure move some water eventually.
    I'll be on the water tomorrow. Looks to be a great day.
