    I LOVE your site and all of the awesome female-centered information you provide but this video is really weak. Having been a noob at the park, this video was less than helpful. When telling a new person how to get up on the cable, you offer "keep your knees bent with the board ahead of you, the handle right near your hips, and shoulders back, and then you just slide right off."

    If someone followed those instructions verbatim they would face plant right outta the gate. No mention of the way the cable will pull you, which way to point your board, etc.? I have heard amazing things about the coaches at OWC and I am sure in person this is true, but this video leaves a lot to the imagination.

    I look forward to seeing more detailed "how-to's" in the future!

    Still a faithful follower. :)
