Step 1: Building the Roller
The roller is a pretty key part in making your trainer work
>Take your bicycle inner tubes and chop the valve off
>cut down the centre to produce a flat piece of rubber
>Tape this piece of rubber onto the roller with parcel tape or duck tape
The roller is complete
Take your old board and put it in place
Step 2: That's It ...... Just Ride !
Put the center of your chosen board on the roller and step on with both feet evenly spread. Then rock towards the end of the board that is in the air and you will begin to balance. When you get better 180's, 360's and shuvits are all possible. For the beginner wakeboarders you can use the handle attatched to a tree to get a feeling for the backside rotation and also how to balance on rails.
It also provides a smoother ride if you do it on carpet or an old rug and a flat piece of grass is also very good
Thanks very much and have fun :)
