    What's you guys take on starts from the swim platform? I have a few buddies that do this constantly but I haven't tried it myself.

    It looks easy enough....the wave is already formed and you just ease yourself into the pocket with a bit of rope.

    Any input on this style?

    I'm basically 100% successful on platform STOPS, but only like 20% on platform STARTS. :-/ With my boat it'll often take a bit to form the wave (10+ seconds depending on takeoff angle, rudder position and amount of throttle). That said, you'll find that as soon as you push off the platform, it'll actually be pushing you back ON to the platform. it's actually kinda tricky because you naturally have to start with too much weight forward on the board and it doesn't have much stability until you're a few feet back into the wave. I rarely try it because I find that 80% of the time I crash and end up taking that bath in the cold water (some of the reason to platform start--avoiding the cold, LOL). And of course when you crash, then the boat has to circle around and get you all over again, so you burn time.

    I've only done it with the rope. But that also presents its own risks with that much rope when you're that close to the boat. I have a buddy that's easily 75% successful with platform starts and has even done plenty without the rope.

    That said, I will do platform stops confidently where I pop the nose of the board onto the platform and then step over with my back foot and reach back and grab my board. It's always a hit with people that haven't seen me do it before.

    Me thinks it's his way of saying that I talk big and that you like to give me sh**.

    I think MJH tried to make a funny.

    And seems like Knox is getting a reputation, LMAO

    I just find it odd that I never commented on platform starts yet MJH brings me back into it off a comment by you. Not sure where this is going. It is actually you that gives me crap and I just laugh because I know you are ribbing me. Keep having fun.
