What aperture should I try to shoot wakeboarders riding away from the sun?
it depends on what you want the photo to look like. do you want to freeze the action? do you want a silhouette? do you want motion blur?
then, meter accordingly
well yes but I am pretty sure there is an "ideal" aperture when shooting the sun.

As for what aperature?
What do you want them to look like?
I think I am going to give f/16 a try. The sun will be setting directly be hind the rider creating a silhoutte of the rider.
good luck staring right into the sun. let us know how it turns out
do you want them silhoutted or do you want them normally exposed and a burned out background?
or flash them and normally expose the background.
there is no perfect aperture
cropped. My uncle took the picture of me wakeboarding. We were going real fast taking the boat to the other side of the finger of the lake so we could turn around and have the sun facing me (for better photographing). Just an example of the silouette previously mentioned.
Also a good example of what the sun can do to a CCD sensor.
Please don't point your camera directly at the sun.
Circle of confusion .
