Wakeboarding tricks for beginners and intermediate

Wakeboarding tricks for beginners and intermediate 

Wakeboarding is a fun and exciting water sport that involves performing different tricks and techniques on a wakeboard while being pulled behind a boat. Just like snowboarding and surfing, these tricks can earn you extra points based on style and execution.

Jumping the board to maximum height is the key to performing a trick, and the rider’s edge plays an important role in determining the height of the jump. Heel side edge is when you face the boat, while toe side edge is when you face away from the boat with your chest.


Wakeboard trick


Here are some wakeboarding tricks that beginners and intermediate riders can try out:




Fashion Air 

Curl the board behind your butt with your knees pointing down and pop up the board. 

Throw your hand behind your head while being airborne for a stylish pose before landing.


Air Raley

Swing your body backward parallel to the water surface while airborne, swing the board and body down, and then land on the other side of the wake.


911

Similar to Air Raley, but tweak your body after swinging backward parallel to the water surface in the air. Then land on the other side of the wake.





Blind Judge

Perform an Air Raley while airborne and take a 180º backside rotation while swinging back. Then land facing the opposite direction.


Krypt

After performing an Air Raley, take a 180º front rotation before landing.


Batwing

Swing the wakeboard vertically in a backward direction until the board becomes perpendicular to the water surface. While being airborne, hold the toe edge between your feet using your back hand and perform an Indy grab.


Surface 360º 

While riding on the surface of the water, spin the board 360º while alternating the hands to grab the handlebars.


Tantrum 

Approach the wake on your heel-side and perform a backflip over the wake on an axis perpendicular to the direction of the board.



Mobius 

Perform a Heelside Roll first, then take a front-side 360º spin while flipping. This is an extension of Heelside Roll to Revert.


Whirlybird

Perform a tantrum and take a 360º back-side spin without altering the hand on the handlebar.


Moby Dick

Perform a tantrum and take a 360º back-side spin while altering the hand on the handlebar.


Tweety Bird

Perform a Whirlybird without using the wake and jump. Use the boat speed and lower body energy for the jump.



Heelside Backroll 

Approach the wake on your heel-side and flip over the wake on an axis parallel to the direction of the board.


Heelside Roll to Revert 

Perform a Heelside Roll first, then take a front-side 180º spin while flipping and land facing the opposite direction.


Heelside Roll to Blind 

Perform a Heelside Roll first, then take a backside 180º spin while flipping and land facing the opposite direction.


KGB

Perform a Heelside Roll first, then take a backside 360º spin while flipping. This is the opposite trick to Mobius.


Toeside Backroll

Approach the wake from the toe-side and flip over the wake on an axis parallel to the direction of the board.



Toeside Roll to Revert

This trick is an extension of the Toeside Backroll. To perform it, start by doing a Toeside Backroll, then while landing, take a front-side 180º spin and land in the opposite direction. This trick requires good timing and balance to execute properly.


Pete Rose

The Pete Rose is another extension of the Toeside Backroll. To perform it, start with a Toeside Backroll, then take a frontside 360º spin and land in the same direction. This is a more advanced trick that requires a lot of practice to master.


Toeside Frontroll

For this trick, approach the wake on the toe-side and take a flip over the wake in an axis parallel to the direction of the board.


Tootsie Roll

To perform this trick, start with a Toeside Frontroll and then do a backside 180º spin while landing in the opposite direction.


Dum-Dum

Start with a Toeside Frontroll and then do a backside 360º spin while landing in the same direction.



Toeside Front Flip

Approach the wake on toe-side and take a flip over the wake in an axis perpendicular to the direction of the boat.


FruitLoop

Start with a Toeside Front Flip, then do a backside 180º spin, and land facing the opposite direction.


Bel Air

Perform a Tantrum without the help of a wake.


Air Krypt

Approach the wake on toe-side, perform an air raley in the direction perpendicular to the boat, take a 180º turn, and land facing the opposite direction.



Board Slide

If you come across an obstacle, approach it and slide the board over it in a direction perpendicular to the obstacle with the obstacle in between your feet.
