Purposely took half day off from work to go wakeboarding at East Coast Park Ski360degree with Nithe. It has been real long since I last touched a wakeboard, about 4 years. Remembered taking up wakeboarding in sec 3 coz of some related project (excuse to have some fun). hahaha.. Was so afraid that I've totally forgotten how to wakeboard after so so long, but after a few atempts, the feeling came back.
Wakeboarding on cable and behind the boat is actually quite similar. It's easier to learn behind the boat as the boat slowly accelerates and so the tension on the rope won't be that big, whereas cable runs at a constant speed so once your rope catches the cable, there's a sudden tuck. More importantly, cable is way cheaper than wakeboarding behind a boat so yar. Also, the ski park at ECP is bigger and more techno than the one in Batam.
Anyone interested to try? I'll probably be going down again some time next week. A real good workout for the upper body. I'll so gonna ache like crazy for the next few days..
