I wanna try wakeskating this summer. What kind of shoes could work, i dont want to buy wakeskating shoes cuz i wont be doin it that much. I have heard of people drilling holes in old shoes and using those. Does that work alright or am i better off just buying some shoes?? Help me out

Just and old pair of skate shoes should do fine. I use some of Reefs I found in a thrift store for 2 bucks. <BR>I haven't drilled holes because they're pretty light when wet. But alot of people say the holes help drain water to make them lighter.

Thats the problem, i dont have any old skate shoes that fit. I guess ill try to find a friend with some old ones i could have. Or would some old tennis shoes work also?

Indoor soccer shoes work good also. Just drill some holes for drainage.
