Wakeboarding woes

December 29, 2006 - Categories: family

“Oh, don’t worry,” one of the wakeboarders reassured me. “I fell a
hundred times before I figured it out.”

Twenty-two faceplants and counting!

I managed to make it all the way around on water skis last Monday, but
couldn’t duplicate the feat today. Wakeboarding was a complete
non-starter. I kept plowing into the water face first, right off the launching bench. No matter how well I visualized myself holding on, no matter how much I tensed my knees, I kept getting pulled off-balance by the cable.

Still, I kept going back.

Maybe I’ll get the hang of it next year… =)
