I’d been under the impression that wakeboarding would be relatively easy what with having a knowledge of snowboarding but, actually, there are some big differences. The hardest part was definitely getting up – and staying up – a fact not helped by the choppiness of the water (this was quite close to high tide – not the smartest time to be going for a first time).
Depending on how you’re learning and how much help you’re getting, I think it’s definitely worthwhile checking YouTube for instruction videos. Even if you plan to get proper lessons, having a little background knowledge on what to expect will definitely help when you finally get on the water. There are also multiple good videos showing how stand up on a wakeboard (for me definitely the hardest bit in all this).
I also wouldn’t recommend going for more than half an hour on your first day – I was exhausted by the time this session was done.
