How do I control my speed while wakesurfing?

Changing Speed While Wakesurfing

The balance of weight is critical in dictating speed while wakesurfing. Understanding how shifting weight can affect the speed will help to keep the wake surfer balanced. Shifting weight onto the rear foot and leaning the body back over the rear foot will help to slow down the board. To increase speed, shift weight forward over the front foot. Pumping the front foot on the board is helpful for maintaining speed.
