This is the second Boost Camp offered this summer and it is all about riding switch! Have you ever tried to throw a ball with you non dominant hand? It’s awkward! Riding a wakeboard with your non-dominant stance can be a little tricky at first as well. However, there is a lot to gain from being able to ride the wakeboard both directions (regular and switch). At this boost camp, we will help riders unlock new possibilities with riding the board in a switch stance.

Kirby Liesmann will evaluate each rider’s current ability level then work with them to accomplish their goals for the day. Having a solid foundation in fundamentals will help riders get the most out of their time on the water.
