    3 of 5 Stars!Kelly Gray, 09/03/2004
    Very thorough instruction and rider footage showing each trick. This is where the DVD excels.

    I wish there was a version without all the cheesy animations and visual effects. In many cases the screen blacks out or transitions into an annoying graphic right in the middle of showcasing the mechanics of the trick. It becomes really distracting after a while.

    The narration is a little on the monotone side - not much enthusiasm – so it gets slow at times. If you're looking for a DVD to get you pumped up to go wakeboarding this probably isn't the one for you.

    If you can get past the the cheesy effects, long setups before each trick and focus on the instruction; it's not bad. Without all that it would be a much better DVD.

    There can never be too many wakeboarding instructional videos. For most people, wakeboarding is a difficult sport, and finding good coaching is hard to do unless you live near a wakeboard camp. Therefore, the more instructional videos we can get out there with a wide variety of coaches helps people excel at the sport.

    The latest wakeboarding instructional DVD to hit the market is Waketrix. How does it stack up?

    Concept

    The primary concept of Waketrix is to be a detailed instructional video focusing on the basics and intermediate skills of wakeboarding. There isn't much free riding mixed in, and they take the basic concept a bit further with the DVD format by allowing you to click "Enter" on your DVD remote to get more detailed instructions about the trick.

    Riders in Waketrix include:


    Darin Shapiro

    Dallas Friday

    Danny Harf

    Loren Levine

    Cobe Mickacich

    John Nadolski

    Josh Sanders

    Zane Schwenk

    Chad Sharpe

    Jeff Solei

    Daniel Watkins

    Cinematography

    The entire video was shot on location at Shapiro's Ride the Spot wakeboard camp on Lake Mary Jane in Orlando, FL. So, the scenery isn't terribly exciting being a standard Florida lake, but each trick is shown in multiple angles with a good focus on the rider.

    It's safe to say it isn't exciting cinematography, but it definitely gets the job done well when the focus is on instructional content.

    Length

    Waketrix is over an hour long with no "off the water" footage. It's entirely devoted to teaching you how to wakeboard.

    Music

    The music in Waketrix is mostly instrumental, and is an original soundtrack featuring:


    DJ Ethos

    Darin Shapiro

    DJ 3RDI

    Ezra G

    Circle of Chaos

    Josh Marcy

    Instructional Content

    Waketrix breaks down each trick into three sections.



    Fundamentals - What tricks do you need to know or skills do you need to have before attempting this trick?

    Mechanics - What is your body position like on approach for this trick? What type of edge do you use? How do you pop off the wake? What do you do with the rope? How do you start the rotation?

    Progression - What can you add to this trick for style? How can you do it differently? What advanced tricks can you learn from it?


    This format makes it easy to think about the trick in the correct ways.

    At any time during the trick, you can press "Enter" to get even more details on performing the trick from expert coach Mike Ferraro. Ferraro has coached Darin Shapiro and Dallas Friday, among many other riders.

    Waketrix only focuses on beginner and intermediate tricks. This gives it a lot of time to spend on each trick covered. The full list of tricks are:


    Getting Up

    Board Control

    Cut Back Drill

    No Air Wake Cross

    Ollie

    Hop In, Hop Out

    Riding Switch

    Surface 180

    Boardslide/Lipslide

    Ollie 180

    Heelside Wake Jump

    Toeside Wake Jump

    Grabs

    TS/FS 180

    HS/FS 180

    TS/FS 360

    HS/FS 360

    Backside 180

    Back Roll

    Roll to Revert

    TS Back Roll

    TS Back Roll to Revert

    Front Roll

    Scarecrow

    Tantrum

    Raley

    The tricks are performed well, and the drills at the beginning are something I hadn't seen mentioned much in other videos. It's a mistake for riders to go from getting up right to wake jumping, but that's what most people try to do without proper instruction. They'd be much better off following the advice of Waketrix.

    Bonus Features

    The bonus features on the Waketrix DVD include:


    A look at the Ride the Spot Camp

    Driving Instruction

    The Trixionary

    Sidewayz Trailers for other videos

    A section of bonus footage

    Overall

    The downside of Waketrix is that it stops at 360s and basic inverts and doesn't provide much of anything for higher level intermediate and advanced riders. It also doesn't contain much freeriding footage, so it's not the type of video to pump you up to ride.

    However, I was impressed with the technical detail and focus on fundamentals in Waketrix. The extra time for each trick really allows for a lot of detail and many examples of the trick to be shown. It's definitely a great learning tool for those who are just starting wakeboarding or learning to do basic spins and inverts.

    I have been skiing all of my life, but have only been wake boarding for two seasons. This DVD showed me exactly what I needed to move on from this plateau and start some serious tricks.

    We have a lot of friends that are also just starting out, I'm going to have to get everyone over for some schooling.

    Waketrix breaks down your maneuvers in to individually practicable parts and shows you how to combine them. This goes for everything. So as you get better with one trick, you master the basics for the next, while showing you how to apply muscle memory and master those high flying stunts.
