Ive been thinking about this too. All i could think of is to anchor it directly into the bottom of the lake or wherever you're doing it with metal poles, but i also thought that gets really hard, especially in water deeper than 10 feet, hahaha.
What im thinking now is that if you make the rail part, attach it to something that floats that runs the lengh of it, and to that attach poles or soemthing thats weighted at the bottom so as to give it an ultra low center of gravity (one below water level), then use a rope or something to anchor it into position.
yeha i have a friend whos building a rail or 'slider' in wakeboard terms, you just need it to be heavy and have a wide, boyant base, i suggest a low rail with a wide bottom that uses those blue plastic containers as floaters
yea we were trying to think of a way to make one that you could adjust the length of...but i dont think that'd work. but yea anchoring it would be a problem.. were not sure what were gonna do yet to do it.
haha i think i see what you're saying
but the weights have to weigh a LOT and the base has to be really wide i guess..
and another question... ive never hit a rail oh a wakeboard before.. do you set it like right on top of the water or is it raised up or what... and do you jump on to it or just slide right on to it?
and do you do the same things as you would if you were hitting a rail on skis?
ive never tried a rail either, but in watching it on tv, its raised off the water about a foot or so, and you ollie to get on it. ollieing on a wakeboard is pretty easy, if you just pump you weight down a little, the watter will pop you back up.

i have another question... say i made a box of sorts for wakeboarding. my board has like..built in fins on either side.. would that effect how i should hit it? or.. can i go straight onto it like a snowboarder does sometimes (im really bad with naming grinds... 50/50 maybe??)
not hard at all...build a boyant base with those blue barrels they use for swim platforms. we just tie a few anchors to each end and put it whereever we want in the lake. build any kinda of rail you want out of pvc and put it on the platform. you kids suck are figuring things out.
