How do you do a side slide while wakeboarding?

Side sliding while wakeboarding

If you enjoy wakeboarding then there are many tricks that you can learn. One such trick is the side slide. This means you will be doing slides either inside or outside of the wake. Twist your hips towards the boat in order to direct the board. Turn the board 90 degrees (until it's perpendicular to the boat's direction of travel). Then all you need to do is slide. Some good wakeboarding tips are to keep the board flat on the water, and to put your weight down slightly heavier on the side of the board that is the furthest away from the boat.
