Side Lifter Wedges
Do they actually work ? I was going about 70 and hit some wakes. It lifted me off the ski. My legs would leave the foot wheel. Both of my legs were bruised on the inside from the series of wakes I bounced through.

YES, side lifter wedges work. You can tuck your toes under and stay glued to the seat even in heavy chop. You have to be careful where you install them. You need to get your foot out from under them easily or you could snap your ancle if you were to get tossed. I know Mark(hydrotoys) makes his own and swears by them. Pm him and see what direction he steers you in.

I don't do high speed turns with waves. It's recreational wakes at high speed that bounce me off the seat. I think the hydroturfs on the insde of of the foot well work work for me since I'm not likely to get tossed going straight over waves/wakes.
This was the thread showing Mark's wedges

Change your riding style. When hitting wakes at higher speeds, you shouldn't be on the seat. Lift your arse off the seat and use your legs as shock absorbers. If your weight is on the seat you'll get bounced all over the place.

Good for when your riding alone...but if you have a passenger...cant quite stand up.

You have to be able to turn your foot to release the clips on the bike shoes.
