    Awesome videos, I love learning new tips and ideas. What recommendations brands do u have for new rope ideas? I ride behind an 89 20' ski brendella with fat sacks. I have been riding 15+years or so. I am very comfortable on a board. I have been working to land my first roll or flip on a wakeboard. I have landed a barrel roll on a kneeboard..

    Hey lad. So a quick question is how do i decide between a boat board or a cable board as my family has a boat but i ride more at a cable park. Do u think a boat board is rideable on a cable?

    Dude I am so stoked to go out this weekend. The wife just picked me up a 2018 Obrien Valhalla for my birthday. Of course one that you recommended when I messaged you. I looked online and couldn’t find anything and she found it for me. Can’t wait to try it out.

    What’s the difference between foot position? Or is it just based on what you’re comfortable with? Thanks

    Hey David! First I'd like to say I love your vids! They've really helped me improve my wakeboarding and learn new tricks! I'm currently looking for a new board so I can step up my wakeboarding. I've gotten down the wake to wake jumping with grabs (been doing that for years) and thanks to your videos learned just about all the 180s I can possibly do besides blind wake to wake 180s, but I haven't really tried them yet haha. I do boat riding on an older wake boat and would like to find something that will help me get me more air time and get me more in to the intermediate tricks because I'm hoping to get in to those soon. Any recommendations on the type and style of board I should get? I'm about 5'7 and 145 pounds if that helps at all. Thank you!!!

    Hello , I am somewhat new to the channel but I hope u wouldn’t mind answering a few questions. I am new to wake boarding and I was wondering what the difference is when u have fins vs when u don’t . I know the five u more control and friction in the water but my one question is can u still do a 180 while on the water or do I have to jump up and do a 180. My last question is should I use fins behind a boat or should I not? And don’t worry I subscribed!

    I am slightly better than a beginner, i can do wake to wake jumps without huge pop. Looking at buying a proper board. Would you recommend a Ronix Core22 (2015), Slingshot Response (2017) or a Hyperlite Murray (2018). Can get all of these on a good deal at the moment otherwise would consider some Obrien boards (we have their tube haha)

    Hey Dave, I'm in a great position over in Scotland where I'm 30min from loch lomond, 30min from Glasgow wake park and have regular access to Foxlake over in the east of Scotland. With this in mind which style of board would be best to ride a mix of cable and boat or should I get one for my preferred riding style and hire from the other?
    Cheers

    Ronix is pretty good, my friend is a semi-pro wakeboarder and snowboarder, he's taken some pretty hard falls, his Ronix lasted for 3 years and it was a high quality board but also pretty cheap as far as wakeboards go (he got it for $250)

    Yes ik David was getting that little ad in there for his sponsor but I'm sure he truly means what he says when he said he thinks it's the best

    David, I know this is an older video, but worth a shot. I work at a dealer in MI, we've recently picked up O'Brien again as a supplier to our proshop, and I'm wondering if you've ever had any warranty issues with O'Brien boards/boots. Just curious as to how they hold up long-term as the longevity of the products I put out is a major concern for myself and my customers.
    Cheers from Michigan!

    i truly believe that Liquid Force and Slingshot Boards are the best. David pro wake boarders tell me that O'Brien are the worst.

    Hey, David! I really enjoy your videos. Very informative, always entertaining, and great energy on your part. Well done! I have a question related to this video. What are your thoughts on the new extra long boards? 151, 156, 161cm. I'm 78 kg, and ride a 145 at the cable. The marketing hype is that the longer boards are even more fun on rails and land softer than shorter boards. What are your thoughts? Thanks!
