A day out on the water mastering tricks on a wakeboard seems like the perfect recipe for fun, but if you are not aware of the safety rules you should be following, then your fun day can turn into a nightmare pretty soon. So before you start taking twists and turns and popping your wakeboard, remember these safety tips.
Read the weather report before heading out
Since you are a beginner, you probably do not have the expertise required to handle your Hyperlite wakeboards in inclement weather. Windy weather can make the water too choppy, and rains can reduce visibility. So always, always, read the weather report before you leave home.
Wear a life jacket
If you do not own one, run to the store to get one right away before you read more! One cannot stress enough the importance of a proper life jacket. Even pros and highly trained wakeboardersg have accidents, and on the water the unexpected is the norm. Not only you, but also the ones on the wakeboat along with you should wear a life jacket.
Take your friends along
A driver in the wakeboat will not be able to check over his shoulder to see if something has gone wrong. Which is why you need more than one friend in the wakeboat; and if the friend is a wakeboarder too then it’s a win win situation! Also, having a friend along means you can ask them to film your routine so you can check for goof ups later.
