Here is how you wakeboard if you're lauren laws...
1. Choose a lifejacket that is too big
2. Struggle to get your feet in the bindings
3. get into the water
4. hold on to the rope
5. get pulled up
6. face plant
7. struggle to flip back over again
8. be mocked for your inabilities
9. fail to get up all the way a few more times
10. eventual success, to the sound of cheering from fans
11. struggle to get out of the bindings
12. cut your foot on the boat's propeller on the way back in
The real key here is to face plant every single time you wipe out.
