Driving in open water - instructional video

Driving to keep the lake calm

This video pops up on Facebook every now and then. It uses a wakeboarder as the example, but everything would equally apply to pulling a skier. Nothing revolutionary here, but it's a good refresher. I wish everyone on our lake could be made to watch this...

    Great video. New boat owner here, and I have been doing my u-turns while pulling a rider all wrong. Thank you for sharing.

    Unless you're in gator infested water....then its good to get back to a fallin skier pretty quick. Unless they are afraid of gators, then you can let them sweat it out a little bit.

    I'd be curious to hear what methods others use to keep it straight in open water. Obviously sighting something on land, but does anyone line up something on the boat somehow with that landmark?

    I just rely on good ol binocular vision to keep it straight. Pick my point and drive straight at it.
