The quality of your riding experience and arguably your entire day on the boat has a lot to do with how good your captain is. Being a good wakeboarding and wakesurfing driver is a lot more that simply keeping the speed consistent, especially since almost every boat does that for you these days. It’s important to know your lake and know where the best riding is going to be. That will depend on a number of things – wind direction, lake depth, local laws and how many other boats are riding in that zone.
