Hello all. <BR> <BR>Has someone ever tried to wakeskate on a regular skateboard without the wheels? <BR> <BR>Cause i think it would be verry cool on such a small board <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> <BR> <BR>Greetz Han

its works alrite. me and my bro tried it out and it takes alot of skill to just get up. he was able to get outside the wake and try a shuv it just sinks down way to much and just is not a good ride.

No but I've used a skateboard deck on a snow covered hill, gonna try it in the lake this year.

How about putting some trucks &amp; wheels on a wakeskate?

Dustin - if you've tried that, you should check into trying a snowskate (I believe that's what it's called). It basically looks like 2 skateboard decks stacked on top of each other with a few inches in between the two. You just stand on it. Very hard to control, I'm told, but I guess a blast. Most mountains out here don't allow them, but I did see 3 guys using them at Copper Mtn last year and it was pretty radical! this is like the ones i saw: http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A9G_Rq06MLZF_3kAoHajzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTA4NDgyNWN 0BHNlYwNwcm9m/SIG=14c0510ld/EXP=1169654202/**http%3A//www.bluetomato.at/magazin/stories/stories.php%3Flink=1%26jahr=2003%26ereignis=bos_ka prun_event%26datei=index.html and here's a different type: http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A9G_Rq.bMLZFre8A9_SjzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTA4NDgyNWN 0BHNlYwNwcm9m/SIG=12r67b8s2/EXP=1169654299/**http%3A//www.gadgetblog.it/post/231/railz-snowskate-skateboard-sulla-neve <BR> <BR>(Message edited by kylielogan on January 23, 2007)

Lemme try this again, cuz that sure didn't work right! The one i saw first and then a "rail" skate. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/68124/406998.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/68124/406999.jpg" alt="Upload">

the guys at the buywake warehouse have a old scape with trucks that they ride around on.

iv been pulled behind a boat on a skate deck. you need a lot of speed to stay up, feels like slalom skiing

Tried it the other week, the board was too small for me. Nearly got up on it but I gave up after about 10 attempts.

I wakeskated a lunch tray before. I was a submarine for a bit until i got enough speed to come out of the water. I rode for about 10 seconds until the tray cracked and sank out from under me, haha.
