How can you double up when wakeboarding?

How to Double Up when Wakeboarding

The most important thing to do when you are considering doubling up in wakeboarding is speak to your boat driver. If you ride right foot forward, your driver should turn to the left, and vice versa. You need to make this clear before you start. You should ride on the inside of the boat's loop as it starts to turn. You then need to cut toward the boat's current wake as you see the old wake approaching it. Put some tension in your rope and increase control slightly by slowing down. Bunny hop when you meet the wakes' convergence. Jump off the points that the two wakes form, pull your knees up, and tweak, twist, grab, or contort. Then land safely and try it all over again.
