Hey everyone, so i've been wakeboarding in the summer and snowboarding/freestyle skiing in the winter and i recently saw a pair a twin tip water skis call wake skis, does anyone know anything about these things?

I have seen a video on them at Hyperlite dealer days last year and the guys on the video were doing some pretty sick stuff. These are going to be great for people that like jumping the wake on skis but not really into wakeboards. Definetly worth checking out or demo a pair.

yeah man im into freestyle on the snow so this would be great for the off season

HO Skis is working on getting out a new video out. The stuff that they have right now is mainly at the Cable. This new vid should focus more on the wake side...

Here is some wakeskiing at a cable park. Pretty sick. The guy is a Stereo Skis Team rider. <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EY1RU5IK9M" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EY1RU5IK9M</a> <BR> <BR>Latest news is they are working with Square One now. Could they possibly have found a better partner?

I have been out on the HO wake skis before and they are actually really pretty easy to use. They are not hard to hit the wake with and go wake to wake. I dont even ski any more... still pretty easy. We had a guy that wake boards quite a bit out on them and he got up first time and loved them. Just takes a little getting used to the landings. <BR> <BR>Also, a little birdie told me that HO is comming out with a binding that is built specifically for the wake skis. Way more supportive - pretty much a wakeboard binding with a ski plate.

I would to. Compared to the Radar boots Stereo are using, the HO boots dont look to good.
