A Little Boating Fun


Skipper's Corner -
How to Be a Better Water Sports Driver

This time of year seems like everyone is doing water sports; tubing, wake boarding and even bare footin.  It seems simple; the boarder jumps in, yells 'Hit It' and you're off and boarding... right?

Well, becoming a great driver takes almost as much practice as becoming a great wake boarder.  Here are a few tips to help out:

Pick the Right Water:

The first choice you have when doing water sports is where to start.  Choose a deep enough area and one off the beat-n-path with enough room for your turns.

Getting out of the main traffic area is safer and gives your rider smoother water to carve up.

Keep it Straight:

Unless you're tubing, riders enjoy a nice straight run.  To provide the best ski or wake board run, pick a point on the horizon for the straightest track possible.

This gives the rider the maximum distance to cut and jump behind the boat.

Watch Those Turns:

As the driver, you have to access the safety of each turn.  It's best to signal to your rider that a turn is coming up so they can prepare.

When pulling tubers, remember, they cannot steer so ensure there is plenty room to account for the distance they will arch outside the wake.

Keep it Consistent:

To improve your riders performance, try to get each and every start identical.  Then, keep your speed consistent.  A slight 1 MPH adjustment in speed can change the shape of your wake for wake boarders or slack in the line for skiers.  A nice consistent speed will allow the riders performance to improve and be more fun.

Use these simple tips and watch your riders improve and enjoy their water sports even more!  

If you or your kids are interested in improving your wake boarding or wake surfing fun, consider a lesson from the WWA Nautique Nationals Amateur Women's tittle winner Nicole Steele at Phoenix Wake Academy.  They offer training on your lake in group or one-on-one sessions.

Before we go, I wanted to personally invite you to our 12th Annual Hall Marine Boat Expo in Charleston the weekend of September 20th.  Give me a call if you're interested in setting up a time to personally inspect any of the Yachts during the event.

Well, that does it for another edition of The Boating Life.  Be on the lookout on our FaceBook page for updates from our co-owner, Jeff Hall.  He and his family will be bringing a Meridian Sedan Bridge up the ICW from the plant in Florida to our Yacht Center in Charleston.  I'm hoping he'll share some pictures and any fun stories in next months newsletter.

As always, if there is any way we can be of service, give me a call or drop me an email.
